Stallone's Olympic Flame Fear

RAMBO star SYLVESTER STALLONE had a huge worry about being an OLYMPIC torch-bearer in Los Angeles this morning (16JUN04) - he was terrified of tripping and falling over for all the world to see.

The Hollywood actor ran with the flame along Venice Beach in front of hordes of fans and the world's media, but he admits that while it was the "proudest moment" of his life, he was petrified he'd do something clumsy in front of a global audience.

He says, "I love the Olympics, just hope you don't develop clown feet and fall down and humiliate your entire life. But don't worry - it's about how you fall!"

Actor TOM CRUISE, rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS, actress ANGELINA JOLIE and comedienne ELLEN DeGENERES are among those who will help in carrying the flame across America before it makes its way to Athens, Greece, where the games will be hosted.
