Hearn questions stadium legacy

Published Add your comment

The Olympic Stadium's suitability for football after the Games has been questioned by the chairman of one of the clubs bidding to become tenants at the £468million venue.

Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn has waged a long campaign for his club to play matches at the stadium after the Olympics - and launched a legal challenge when West Ham were initially chosen ahead of Tottenham.

Hearn told Sky Sports News: "We're looking at it but, I have to say, after my tour of the stadium, I become more and more convinced that this stadium is not fit for football purposes."
