The sale is open to those who successfully obtained tickets in the initial first round ballot. They are being sold on a first-come first-served basis in a process which finishes at 1800 BST on 17 July.

Some 700,000 people can buy tickets. Another 150,000 people ordered tickets in an earlier “second chance” phase.

Those tickets went to people unsuccessful in the initial first round ballot.

In total more than 3.5 million Olympic tickets have now been sold, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) says.

The available tickets for football, volleyball and freestyle wrestling cover 58 sessions and 130 price categories. All other sports have no availability.
