Lord Coe said to the London Assembly: "We did everything possible to fill all the venues". Lord Coe also defended Olympic ticket allocation, saying 76% were in the hands of UK people.
LOCOG chief executive Lord Deighton has defended ticketing, saying occupancy was world beating and there has never been an event so full as this event.
Lord Deighton added, "at any one time there were more than 100,000 people on the Olympic ticket site waiting to snap up tickets."
LOCOG chief executive Lord Deighton: "We said there would be 2.5 million affordable tickets. We've laid out for you where those 2.5 million tickets are...everything I've said about tickets was how the Games played out in the end."
LOCOG chief executive Lord Deighton said "demand for tickets was high because the pricing was so attractive".
Lord Deighton says to London Assembly member John Biggs that many tickets were sold below market value - 340,000 tickets were given to school children and troops.
London Assembly member John Biggs says to LOCOG chief executive Lord Deighton that there is a perception that the ticket system was less than transparent.
