Watford Observer: On this day in south west Hertfordshire On this day in south west Hertfordshire

Olympic champion Sebastian Coe came to Watford to open Hornesport, the new sports section of Horne's menswear shop in The Parade.

Coe has been to Watford several times before - to watch the Hornets. But he confessed he hadn't seen them win yet.

As well as training for the 800m and 1500m at next year's World Athletics Championships in Helsinki, he is working on a paper for a Master of Science degree in economics.
