London 2012 Olympics tickets made available to the public

Tickets have gone on sale for the London 2012 Olympics, marking 500 days until the event gets underway.

Over 6.5 million passes are available for the Games, with prices starting at just £20.

Chairman of London 2012 Lord Sebastian Coe told those looking to plan short breaks in the capital that tickets for the sporting festival "are affordable".

"Yes, the big ticket events are always going to be the big ticket events, but there are plenty of opportunities to see the big stars at the lower price points," he added.

Around 2.5 million tickets for the Games will be available for £20 or less, while events such as the marathon will be free for visitors to attend.

Youngsters under the age of 17 can "pay-your-age" to gain entry to the competition's earlier heats, while special deals are also in place for over 60s.

British hopes at the Olympics are high, with UK Sport chief executive officer Liz Nicholl telling the BBC that she is predicting a top-four medal table finish.
