Beskedet att OS-finalen i fotboll flyttas gladde inte bara det svenska damlandslaget. På en sportbar i Göteborg såldes platserna nästan slut när nyheten kom.

– Det blev nästan fullbokat på en och en halv timme, det är helt otroligt, säger Richard Granata, restaurangchef på Cheers Pub & Sportbar.

I sista stund kom beskedet att OS-finalen i fotboll mellan Sverige och Kanada flyttas fram. Ny avsparkstid blir klockan 14 på fredagen, svensk tid. Det innebär klockan 21 på kvällen i Japan i stället för klockan 11 på dagen, och på så sätt undviker man den värsta hettan.

Lars Höglin, presstalesperson på sportbarskedjan O’Learys, tar emot beskedet när TT ringer.
