The International Olympic Committee denied any responsibility for the empty seats that have been visible at many of the Olympic venues.
The London 2012 organisers, LOCOG, have said that the empty seating areas are reserved for athletes and officials - something they are obliged to do under IOC rules.
Today, Mark Adams of the IOC said this policy was not being reviewed:
We're happy with the way Locog are dealing with it. Our bit [area of responsibility] is the way that our tickets are given to national Olympic committees, how they sell tickets in other countries as opposed to home countries.That has nothing to do with accredited areas because they are not ticketed.

There is pressure to reform the Olympics, to end the scandal of empty seats.
LOCOG says it is pressing national Olympic committees to return tickets that they are not likely to use and selling them to the public.
