Sports fans in Britain and most other European countries have had their last chance to apply to buy tickets for next year's Olympics Games in London.

An online application system which allows people to register their interest has just closed.

The chair of the Organising Committee Lord Coe says there's been a huge interest in tickets across a wide range of events.

Applicants will find out whether they've been successful in the next two months.
