    International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde has backed the idea of returning the Olympic Games to a permanent home in Greece.

    Asked during a forum at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado earlier this week, the IMF chief said: “I believe it is a good idea that is out of the box.”“If this could generate demand, something the economy needs, that would be excellent,” Lagarde said.

    Doesn't seem that much of an "out of the box" idea, people have being saying this for years. Even more so since the massive **** up that is, well... Rio.
