7:52 am on 11 September 2012

The chairman of the London Olympics Organising Committee Sebastian Coe is expected to be the next chairman of the British Olympic Association.

Lord Coe has accepted a nomination to succeed the long-serving BOA chairman Colin Moynihan who is stepping down next month after helping deliver the hugely successful London Games.

It's widely expected that the double Olympic track gold medalist will be elected unopposed.
