Olympics 2012 - voting under way

The IOC is gathered together in Singapore in order to decide the host city for the 2012 Olympics. The countries in competition with each other are London, New York, Madrid, Moscow and Paris. The result is expected at around 11:45 GMT. Many think it is too close to call. Moscow is seen as a long shot, as is New York. Madrid may be the ‘dark horse’ in all this, said John Gaunt on BBC London, though it is probably a strong contest between London and Paris.
