London: London 2012 organisers say Friday's opening ceremony is a 60,000-strong sell-out.

British director Danny Boyle's four-hour extravaganza had only 50 tickets remaining, a matter of hours before the ceremony was to begin, said Jackie Brock-Doyle, the organisers' communications director.

"We had this morning, at about 9 a.m., about 200 tickets left. I think as I was coming in here that had been reduced to about 50, so I think we're heading for a sell-out."
