Robertson denies Olympic overspend

Minister for Sport Hugh Robertson insists that the cost of the London 2012 Olympics will be within the £9.3bn budget.

He is responding to claims by MPs on the public accounts committee that the Olympics may go over budget because initial estimates on things such as security were wrong.

Robertson tells BBC Sport's David Bond that the way the costs have been looked at by the committee is unfair and that some of the spend is other government departments investing in the opportunity that London 2012 presents.
