Seb Coe has done a brilliant job delivering the best Games ever. Now I want him to help me deliver the best Olympic legacy ever. Legacy has been built into the DNA of London 2012 from the very beginning thanks to Seb. I'm delighted that (IOC president) Jacques Rogge described our legacy plans as a blueprint for future Games hosts.
I am determined to make the most of the economic opportunities on offer from hosting the Games - making sure that we turn these Games into gold for Britain. I cannot think of a better person than Seb to be our ambassador to the global market-place and make sure we achieve our ambitious legacy targets.
