We are told that a fairly staggering 900,000 tickets will begin to go on sale today from 11am, initially only to those who have already applied and been rejected for tickets. These representing contingency tickets, those returned by punters who no longer want them, and those that no one wanted in the first place.

Numbers include 47,000 for athletics in the Olympic Stadium and a further 70,000 tickets to skulk around the Olympic Park 'soaking up the atmosphere', which all begs the question why we were hyped into over committing to tickets we couldn't afford this time last year.
