Pub chain JD Wetherspoon cheered an Olympic boost to sales but warned the gold performance could not be sustained as the impact of one-off events tails off.


The group, whose 860 mainly town-centre pubs screened the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, saw like-for-like sales in the six weeks to September 9 jump 8.4%, with total sales up 12.8%. This compares with 6.1% growth in the 11 weeks to July 8.
