DAVID Cameron revealed today that his daughter Nancy wants to be an Olympian - so that she can run after the family car if she is ever again left in the pub.

The Prime Minister told an audience at Loughborough University: "My daughter said yesterday: 'Dad, when I grow up I want to be an Olympian', she suddenly declared.

"I don't know what sport she's choosing - presumably if I leave her in the pub again the 100m to catch up with the car before it heads off into the distance."

Mr Cameron raised a laugh from the crowd as he made the quip about leaving his eight-year-old daughter after he and wife Samantha had visited the Plough Inn in Cadsden, Buckinghamshire, around two months ago.

The Camerons were with their other children Arthur, six, and 22-month-old Florence, and two other families when Nancy wandered off to the toilets as the group was leaving.

Once her absence was noticed when the Camerons got home they phoned the pub and Nancy was found safe and well.

The Prime Minister made the comment as part of a speech about the legacy of the London Games to an audience at the university, where the preparation camp for Team GB is housed.

Every Olympic athlete will at some point pass through the university to pick up their kit, and Mr Cameron today met some of the athletes following his speech.
