The Olympic Games will come to an end in Beijing in the Olympic Torch will be passed on to Great Britain for 2012 we can't wait.
That question is it's going to be a tough act to follow because of China's been the very very good hosts joining me this morning is -- frisbee with a visit Britain and Eliot.
Thank you once again for coming in -- -- -- -- for years to prepare.
For 2012 is that -- authority on the way.
But accidentally does or -- of infrastructure improvements would begin building work to prepare for the games themselves.
And indeed person is -- -- for years reminding people in London so next Tyson didn't pick and I'm telling people that here's -- -- welcoming destination.
All right so.
I would imagine one of the biggest challenges is the enormous amount of people who -- at it.
Descend on London what's the challenge what happens.
I do believe that there -- will be challenges and London is already a huge tool for many people from around the world some normal Republican to come here.
Perhaps some people might decide -- that -- -- they -- that two week periods here.
That was more in the country that people can come and stay outside of London -- -- they want to see particular attractions.
And I had back captaincy and see these unveil a self -- -- -- it.
The relatively small country say you don't need to -- -- -- the necessary.
Which brings -- the next question transportation as you say small country were already very crowded.
Buses and trains and on the ground already very full throw in the Olympic crowd -- you -- combat that.
Well I think we have Reynolds apologist for being busy being a popular destination I think absolutely that's -- being more buses they don't.
More trains they don't there's already lots of infrastructure going on as we had -- was 2012.

You know I have -- -- have been glued to the Beijing Olympics.
From the from the opening ceremonies which -- absolutely remarkable.
Kind of a tough act to follow -- -- keeping that.
Fascinating I think any Olympic host wants to do that -- previous years and I think sesame London has some way to go team to best and China.
-- -- -- Australia and I'm Athens as well so you would counsel let's give us it was a very confident we're going to be able to do it well this.
It can be expensive they'll be -- -- we know that China's latest at forty billion to put this song is that a challenge.
I think you know -- it costs money to -- and -- however the benefits that will bring the benefits that -- bring -- to -- society Queensland tourism went suspect two billion pound benefit to tourism alliance.
I'm just gonna come to the hole -- -- -- I so I think I'm Cindy.
Yes it's going to be challenging.
Hunt at an event this size why would be challenging but it will rise this kind of you know put -- fantastic events in 2012.
Seal with a visit Britain so I would imagine for your advertising campaign really the Olympics sells itself you have say hey guess what we got the Olympics -- -- no offense to have you approached the advertising campaign to.

-- -- -- I've been leading the campaign to have cheese rolling in the Olympics I'm going to be fantastic I think we have a good chance.
Flailing at very quickly I want to mention accommodation -- the -- trust that obviously you know that's -- a premium here and in the UK.
Is that going to be obviously is that one of the requirements to be an Olympic size you have enough accommodation.
City we have to guarantee -- number of rooms to the NYSE for the athletes in the -- -- -- and how did it become if you like coming over here Brian it equally innocence always have a wide range of accommodation in the great number of rooms in hotels and bed and breakfast and and and small -- -- can tell -- -- -- the last -- -- -- plenty -- -- -- people -- and and -- -- and if you don't want to stay in Central London.
It close enough to do to stay just south side.
