Will London host the Olympics again?

London is the only city in the world to have hosted the Olympic Games three times – in 1908, 1948 and 2012 – but it is unlikely that it would be given the opportunity to enjoy the benefits again of such a major capital project when the Government is committed to spreading wealth across the country.
