Coe: 75% of Olympics tickets have gone to Brits

The chair of the London Olympic Games organising committee, Lord Coe, has said that, as a sports fan himself, he "accepts" that some people have been left "disappointed" after their applications for tickets to this summer's Olympic Games, but that 75% of available tickets have gone to British fans.

Speaking to The Andrew Marr Show, Lord Coe said there has "never been a ticket in the history of sports tickets" that has provoked "such an extraordinary demand".

The chairman also said he felt the committee were fulfilling their mains aims: to have full venues, affordable tickets and to hit revenue targets.
