The Government has announced that a four year goal of raising £11 billion pounds in economic benefit as part of the Olympic legacy has been met in just twelve months.

The total also includes £130 million of contracts won by UK companies for next year's soccer World Cup in Brazil, and the next Olympic Games, in Rio in 2016.
