Rupert Grint: I am not a sporty guy

Rupert Grint has confessed he is not really very sporty.
The Harry Potter star - who is attached to play British Olympic skier Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards in a biopic of his life and who carried the Olympic Torch through north-west London this week - admitted he'd rather watch than take part.
Rupert said: "I'm not really much of a sporty kind of person - I like watching it.
"I think I've got some swimming tickets, it's going to be a great thing to see."
The 23-year-old actor enjoyed his leg of the Olympic Torch Relay.
He joked: "Running is kind of a new thing for me. I don't usually run for anything, but it was all downhill so I was okay."
And he is looking forward to the games.
Rupert said: "I'm really excited, I remember when we first got the bid and it's something I've been looking forward to for years, it's going to be fun."
