London:

Great Britain coach Jason Lee seems to be getting vicarious pleasure seeing the Indians, who are here to play in the four-nation hockey tournament to test the 2012 London Olympic facilities, shiver in the cold, blustery conditions.

Lee says after experiencing the hot climatic conditions in India when his team played in the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games, he is amused to find the Indians struggle to cope with the chill in the Olympic Park air.

"We've been to some hot major tournaments like the Commonwealth Games in Delhi and the World Cup there. So I'm giggling to myself seeing the Indians coming here and thinking it's freezing, finding it as hard in comparison as we found it in India," Lee was quoted as saying by BBC.

"I'm praying for an unseasonably cold August. Hopefully we'll have the coldest summer in history. My tip for acclimatization: Twenty-four hours in the fridge," he said.
