Wigan boss Martinez pleased for Figueroa over Olympics call

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is happy Maynor Figueroa will be playing for Honduras at the London Games.

Martinez believes top-level competition can only benefit his troops.

"It's a fitting reward for what Maynor has achieved in his football career," he said.

"We will be co-ordinating his work with the Olympic team - whatever it takes to ensure that his training programme fits in with what's required.

"He will be one of the main players for Honduras and I'm very much looking forward to seeing him on the biggest stage."
