Sensational London!

WEST Ham United would like to congratulate London for beating Paris, Madrid, New York and Moscow for the honour of hosting the Olympics in 2012.

This is not only a great day for London, but the whole of the UK.

Hammers Managing Director, Paul Aldridge, said: "It is a momentous occasion for British sport and East London. West Ham United, the only Premiership club situated in the Olympic Borough, is proud to support the Games and congratulate Lord Seb Coe and his team, Sir Robin Wales, the Mayor of Newham, and everyone who has worked so hard to make London¹s bid successful.

"The Olympics in 2012 will not only help to regenerate a wide area of Stratford and East London, but will bring inspiration and provide opportunities for young people across the whole of the UK to get involved and enjoy sport."
