Mayor Boris misses out on Olympic tickets for family

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has missed out on London 2012 tickets for his family.

Mr Johnson was one of those who found out on Wednesday if their bid for the 6.6 million available tickets was successful.

Entering the ballot and not getting the tickets made him "proud to be British", he said.

Speaking to the BBC, he said that no other country in the world would reject the mayor of the host city's application for tickets.
