First Olympic lottery game under starter's orders

The first lottery game to raise funds for the 2012 Olympics in London will be launched today.
It comes exactly seven years before the world's biggest sporting championship returns to the capital for the first time since 1948.

The National Lottery will contribute up to £1.5 billion to the cost of staging the London 2012 Games.

Olympics Minister and Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell, Lord Coe, the London 2012 chairman, and Dianne Thompson, chief executive of National Lottery operator Camelot Group plc, are due to attend the east London launch.
