LOCOG - the London 2012 Organising Committee - has confirmed that a ticketing error has led to four synchronised swimming sessions being oversold by 10,000 tickets.

The committee has been contacting ticket holders to offer them alternatives, and 200 lucky individuals will find themselves upgraded to the prestigious men's 100m final.
