London 2012: Behind the scenes at Earls Court volleyball venue

Great Britain captain Ben Pipes gives BBC Sport a behind-the-scenes tour of the indoor volleyball Olympic venue, Earls Court.

GB took on the defending Olympic champions the United States and 2008 runners-up, Brazil, who were impressed with what they saw at the test event.
