Jaques Rogge: London 2012 ''absolutely fabulous''

London has held an "absolutely fabulous" Olympics, according to the president of the International Olympic Committee.

Jacques Rogge has praised the games' organisers for enabling athletes to "make history".

The ringing endorsement came as Lord Coe was appointed Legacy Ambassador. He will advise the government about how to achieve long term benefits from the games.
