Guardian Sport 5 Sept 07

A piece I've just this minute completed for tomorrow's Guardian Sports section.

The article is the symbolic significance of walking in sport
and in particular walking out
and more particular still
Roman Abramavich's recent walk out of a Chelsea ( the team he owns!) match half way through

Comparisions were made with Stalin walking out of Shostakovich's Lady MacBeth of Mtsensk,
afterwhich the composer was publicly lambasted by the government press.
