We hear from a very reliable source that the English GM wasI didn't actually witness the following story, so I can't vouch for it's veracity but what I heard was that a star Armenian player was punched by an English grandmaster at the "Bermudan" party (the traditional main party at Olympiads) while dancing with a very pretty girl who plays for Austraila. The Armenians (who are currently in a comfortable lead in the Olympiad) did not take kindly to this and the English grandmaster has been sent home for his own safety.
