RE­TIR­ING

-

from the Royal Bal­let af­ter 17 years, Cuban-born Car­los Acosta, 42, re­ceives a 20-minute stand­ing ova­tion at the end of a pro­duc­tion of Car­men. It’s pointed out — rather un­nec­es­sar­ily, surely — that this was 12 min­utes longer than that en­joyed by Darcey Bus­sell (right) when she re­tired in 2007. If so, no doubt Ms Bus­sell is con­soled by her sub­se­quent ap­point­ment to the judg­ing team of Strictly Come Danc­ing.
