    A 29-strong delegation of mainland Olympians has concluded a three-day visit to the territory, after putting on displays of their sporting prowess and answering questions from fans.

    The top athletes included Su Bingtan – the first Asian-born sprinter to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 metres – and five-timme Olympic table tennis gold medal winner Ma Long.

    Earlier, Chief Executive Carrie Lam urged schools to promote sport as a way of bolstering young people’s sense of national identity.

    From 9:15am, we’re talking about the iconic Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui, where the bell will be rung again this Thursday, for the first time in 71 years.

    Boycotts, sanctions; Stuck in the Suez

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat, boycotts, sanctions; and stuck in the Suez.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has criticised several international brands including Nike, H&M and Adidas over their decision to boycott Xinjiang cotton. These brands said they would stop buying cotton from Xinjiang because they alleged the cotton were produced by forced labour in the region.
    Some mainland consumers have expressed anger and said they would boycott brands which boycott Xinjiang cottons. The sentiments escalated and celebrities who were spokesperson of these brands also issued statements to cut ties with their sponsors.
    And China has sanctioned organisations and individuals in the UK over what it called "lies and disinformation" about Xinjiang, days after Britain imposed sanctions for alleged human rights abuses in the northwestern Chinese region.
    What do you make of these boycotts and sanctions? Are they effective? Will the boycotts last? Is politics becoming too pervasive?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be talking about the ship stuck across the Suez Canal.
