Who wants 36,000 of Olympic tickets?

Millions of Britons who applied for Olympic Games tickets are to find out if they were successful in getting any.

Stephen Hunt, an insolvency practitioner by trade, bid for £36,000 worth of tickets.

"I paused when I saw how much I was applying for... but the chances of getting one ticket out of that lot is quite small," he said.

"The odds of me getting all of them are hundreds of billions to one."
