Britons buy 75 percent of Olympics ticketsLondon: Sebastian Coe, the chairman of London Olympic Games organising committee (LOGOC), said that 75 percent of available tickets for the Olympics have gone to British fans.

Coe told the BBC that as a sports fan himself, he "accepts" that some people have been left "disappointed" after their applications for tickets for this summer`s Olympic Games, but that 75 percent of available tickets have gone to British fans.

He said there has "never been a ticket in the history of sports tickets" that has provoked "such an extraordinary demand", reported Xinhua.

The chairman also said he felt the committee were fulfilling their main aims -- to have full venues, affordable tickets and to hit revenue targets.
