Tickets for the London 2012 Olympics have gone on sale this morning, 500 days ahead of the event.

So, you’ve got 42 days to have a think about what you want to see, and how much you want to pay.

Ticket prices range from £20 to £2,012 for the most popular events, with discounts for pensioners and youngsters. There’ll be a ballot for oversubscribed events.
