Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn has praised the decision of the High Court to grant a judicial review into the decision to award the Olympic Stadium to West Ham.

Mr Justice Collins found in favour of Tottenham and Orient in their case and a full review will begin on October 18.

Hearn told the club's official website: "The decision is a clear vindication of our determination to take legal action to right this injustice."

He added: "We will continue to fight to the end to safeguard the future of our club and if that means standing alone as the little guy against the powers that be in authority then so be it.

"No-one has considered the impact on Leyton Orient of this move and it is not right that the legacy of what will be an amazing Olympic Games could be to put a family football club with 130 years of history in its local community out of business."
