When the mail is on the other side of the globe

The mail service in Asia has suffered a severe power outage.

BBC Sport’s Mark Lawrenson says that some of the world’s fastest mail services in Asia, including China’s Mail.com, India’s Indiabox and Indonesia’s e-mail service Asos, are also experiencing problems.

But, they’re expected to be back online soon. 

In the meantime, the BBC’s Mark Leggett reports from Bangkok.
