Karren Brady said: "We are delighted and honoured that the organisers of the 2012 London Olympics saw fit to include the West Ham United anthem 'Bubbles' in the fantastic opening ceremony we witnessed on Friday night. We feel It is testament to our standing in the community of the east end of London and we are grateful that this has been recognised by Artistic Director Danny Boyle and his team.

"As I said earlier this week in my open letter to Londoners, West Ham United is determined to ensure the legacy the Olympics brings will live on in east London long after the last javelin has been thrown and the final starting gun has been fired.

"We look forward to sharing more of our vision to help shape the future of east London over the next few weeks and months."
