Prince Harry joined Boris Johnson on an tour around to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park today ahead of its official opening on Saturday.
The diver plans to train more than 30 hours a week in newly-refurbished London Aquatics Centre.
Another chunk of the Olympic Park will reopen to the public on April 5.
There were more signs today of how warm it's been so far this winter with the first daffodils flowering at London's Olympic Park. Despite some recent chilly nights, daytime temperatures have still been holding up into double figures. Daffodils usually spring into life from March.
Regeneration activities planned for the Olympic Park site will only be able to go ahead if millions of pounds of additional funding is set aside, according to a report published today.
The report from the London Assembly's Regeneration Committee warns that community events could be cut if extra funding is not secured.
It argues that the Mayor should set aside at least £12m more funding for the London Legacy Development Corporation between 2015 and 2017 to ensure the planned activities go ahead.
The new look Aquatics Centreat Olympic Park is being unveiled today, after work was completed installing628 panes of glass on the outside of it.
However it won't be open to the public until Spring, when construction inside the complex wraps up.
The centre will host next year's World Diving Series and the 2016 European Swimming Championships.
Crucial work to convert the Olympic Stadium to a football ground was delayed today. The iconic floodlights were supposed to be removed so an extended roof can be built before the venue becomes home to West Ham fans. But as Rags Martel reports, the works didn't quite go according to plan.
Newham's Mayor Sir Robin Wales said: "This is an important milestone in transforming the Stadium into one of London and the nation's premier destination venues and a home for sport and entertainment for years to come.
"Newham is committed to ensuring a lasting legacy that will enable us to support residents into jobs in such an inspirational place, provide tickets to big events as a reward for those who put something back into our community, and fire the ambition of our young people to take up sport."
The main stadium in Stratford which played host to the London 2012 Olympic Games is about to change shape. The triangular floodlights are being taken away. The delicate process should have begun today, but was delayed by the weather.
- The work, made by New York artist Miya Ando
- It was crafted out of steel recovered from the World Trade Centre
- It sculpture was commissioned by the 9/11 London Project to mark the launch of its programme to educate schoolchildren about the attacks
– Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
We backed the 9/11 project when the sculpture first came to Battersea but finding a permanent home for it has proved incredibly difficult, whether it be opposition from Boroughs or bureaucrats. Clearly this can't continue.
As a result I've asked my team to find a permanent home for the sculpture on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The Park was home to a Games based on tolerance, harmony and respect, and will soon be home to a massive multi-dimensional and vibrant community - the perfect riposte to those who sought to divide the world on 9/11.
