The successful staging of the London 2012 Olympics has led to other countries turning to Britain to help deliver their own events, according to a government official.
Reacting to news that the UK had met its four-year target of raising £11 billion worth of economic benefit from the Games in 12 months, Trade and Investment Minister Lord Green said:
"The delivery of London 2012 on time and on budget led to hosting nations turning to the UK to help deliver their own events with supply opportunities running into the billions.
"UK Trade & Investment has played a key role in helping British companies maximise these opportunities and the result is a £11.06 billion boost to the UK economy from the Games, reaching our four-year target in just over a year."
A four-year target of raising £11 billion worth of economic benefit from the London Olympics has been met in 12 months, the Government has announced.
The country has benefited from new foreign investment, additional sales and firms winning contracts since last summer's events, according to a report.
The total includes £130 million of contracts won by UK companies for next year's soccer World Cup in Brazil, and the next Olympic Games, in Rio in 2016.
Daniel Radcliffe looks set to play London 2012 boss Lord Coe in a film about his track battles with fellow athlete Steve Ovett three decades ago. The Harry Potter actor will star in 'Gold', which looks at the tense rivalry between the middle distance runners.
The competition between Ovett and Sebastian Coe is seen as one of the greatest sporting rivalries as they dominated middle distance running, setting world records and amassing medals.
All this week we're looking at the legacy of the London Olympics one year on, and asking whether its main aims are being achieved.
One of its commitments was to inspire more people to volunteer.
A recent survey found that almost half of Londoners were inspired by the Games to volunteer for the first time, or more often.
Simon Harris has been to meet one of last year's gamesmakers, to find out if he's still giving up his time to help others.
One year on from the London Olympics, a new photography exhibition looks at the Games impact on some of the 70 thousand volunteers.
The free display, at Stratfords 'ViewTube' tells a visual story about 17 gamesmakers who made the whole thing possible.
"There was a suggestion that there was a credible attack on the electricity infrastructure supporting the Games.
The clock was absolutely ticking.
We effectively switched to manual, or had the facility to switch to manual.
It's a very crude way of describing it, but effectively we had lots of technicians stationed at various points."
Security experts have revealed that they received suggestions of a cyber attack targeted at the opening ceremony of last summer's Olympic Games.
Oliver Hoare, head of cyber security for the Games, told the BBC he received a phone call from government listening post GCHQ on the day of the opening ceremony.
There were concerns that the lights in the Olympic stadium could have been turned off during the ceremony.
The threat failed to materialise and the ceremony went off without a hitch, but security officials revealed that they had put extensive precautions in place to withstand such an attack.
Mr Hoare said he" twitched" every time the lights in the stadium dimmed as he watched the ceremony at home with his family.
Couples could soon be able to marry with the Olympic Park as their backdrop. Legacy bosses have applied for a licence to hold civil marriage and partnership ceremonies on top of the "Orbit" - the 260-foot high tower which overlooks the entire park.
The Olympic Cauldron is going on display at the Museum of London.
The award winning cauldron will join other London 2012 objects including Tom Daley's trunks and Bradley Wiggins' yellow jersey.
