London mayor Boris Johnson has announced a plan to use some of London's Olympic Ambassadors to encourage volunteering. The Ambassadors were used during the 2012 games to advise tourists in the capital.
The Mayor wants the Ambassadors to go into schools to encourage young people to volunteer in their schools and in their local communities. Some of the young people could end up working at major events in London including the UEFA Champions League Final.
The Ambassadors will also be on hand to guide tourists at venues such as Covent Garden and the Tower of London during the summer.
