Kiwi's globetrotting dash for World Cup final

New Zealand players thank their fans after their victory in the semi-final Cricket World Cup match between New Zealand and South Africa in Auckland on March 24, 2015A New Zealand cricket fanatic is making a round-the-world dash to spend a few hours in Melbourne so he can watch Sunday’s World Cup final between the Black Caps and Australia. British-based New Zealander Peter Thompson will make a 34,000 kilometre (21,000 mile) return trip from London to Melbourne for the final, missing only a single day of work in the process. To achieve the feat, he will spend more than 50 hours travelling — including short layovers in Singapore — in order to have fewer than 18 hours in Melbourne for the match. Thompson, who works in the City of London, told Radio New Zealand that he had received a mixed response from friends to his frenzied trip.
