One person who has to be relieved that London's Olympics are over is WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadoran embassy in London for more than six weeks fighting extradition to Sweden and waiting for the Andean nation to make a decision on his asylum request.
Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño had said that decision wouldn't be coming until after the torch was put out.
Ecuador's not the most obvious choice for Assange. The country has developed a reputation for cracking down on local media. Check out this story about it here.
But Correa and Assange do seem to have a rapport. When Assange interviewed him in May for his show "The World Tomorrow" the pair shared a few good laughs. One of the best jokes to come out of that exchange was one by Correa that goes something like this: You know why the United States will never have a coup? Because they're the only country without a U.S. embassy.
