10 Yetis Examples of Good and Bad PR - Monday July 9th 2012
Morning all, Alexa here with the headlines this Monday. Some cracking tennis this weekend, so it's only fit that...
Goes to Andy Murray, who, despite his loss to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final yesterday, won British hearts with his tear-jerking speech. Although the press are confidently reporting that Federer was simply the better player, overtones of patriotic sympathy render any frustration towards the 25-year-old Scot impossible. He cried, Kate Middleton cried, we all cried. Some fans previously felt a bit cold towards Murray due to his apparently "boring" personality, but then social media went insane and Andy Murray is officially our national sporting treasure - according to the media. At least, until the Olympics.
There's always one, isn't there. Monday's bad PR slap goes to Victoria Beckham who was photographed looking pouty and bored during the Wimbledon final - even though the press are reporting her tickets to the highly coveted event were free. It's bringing up questions in the media about whether peoples' attendance at Wimbledon for a status symbol is a valid enough reason to take up a space. With the Spice Girls West End musical coming up later in the year, Posh needs to swap the pout for a smile and look happy to be alive for a change, in the press' eyes.
