Controversial Sochi Games start in 100 days

Concern over conditions of migrant workers building the venues casts shadow over the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia.

    It's now exactly 100 days until the winter Olympics kicks off in Sochi, but the build-up to the games has proved controversial.

    There have been claims of corruption, and calls for a boycott over Russia's treatment of gay people.

    And now there is concern for the thousands of migrant workers helping to prepare the Black Sea resort.
