Sunshine casts shadow over Winter Olympics

With temperatures on the rise at Sochi Games, some athletes complain warmth has affected the quality of the snow.

    The weather at the Winter Olympics in Sochi has begun to compete for some of the attention, with temperatures in the Russian coastal resort forecast to hit 18C by the end of the week.

    While some athletes have complained the warm weather has affected the quality of the snow, the International Olympic Committee says it is too soon to be concerned.
