A London 2012 spokesman said: "We were always clear about our priorities when it came to tickets - we needed to raise the money to stage the Games, but we also wanted to ensure they were accessible and affordable to as many people as possible.
We feel we achieved this with more than 75% going to the public for the Olympic Games and 91% for the Paralympic Games.
We were required to reserve a proportion of seats for stakeholder groups, such as Games family and media, but when it became clear that these were not being used, we made every effort to ensure that they were made available to the British public.
