Christmas came early for Santa when he popped into La Bonne Auberge as he got to try out the Olympic Torch for himself.
Santa was in the Glasgow restaurant to help them launch their festive menu however, as he's been a very good boy this year, he was able to get his hands on the Olympic Torch which belongs to the popular brasserie's Chef de Partie, Jordan Shane. Recently Jordan was a torchbearer when the flame visited Glasgow, so whilst his colleague, waitress Magda Rybus served Santa his lunch, Jordan kept a close eye on his Olympic torch!
