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.

Olympic fan zone announced for Hyde Park

Olympic fans will get the chance to meet Team GB medal winners to celebrate their successes at fans zones to be set up in London's Hyde Park during the Games.

"'We want as many people as possible to experience the excitement of the Games and this means even more fans will be able to get up close to their sporting heroes. Fantastic moments like the Team GB Fan Zone will add to a summer like no other and create a lifetime of unforgettable memories."

– Mayor Boris Johnson
