Two million Olympic spectators on first three days

More than two million spectators turned out to watch the first three days of London 2012, organisers said today.

Some 856,000 fans, including the football crowds and a "conservative" estimate of 500,000 for the road race, watched on Saturday, with a further 900,000 turning out on Sunday.

A further 370,000 spectators watched yesterday, meaning attendee rates for the three days were 86%, 92% and 88% respectively.

LOCOG updated the meeting on the challenge around empty seating in the accredited areas and set out the measures being taken to address the issue.

This will obviously be kept under constant review on a venue by venue basis over the coming days to ensure that as many seats as possible are filled.
