International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Jacques Rogge has praised London 2012 for providing a "legacy blueprint" for future Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Rogge made the comments ahead of a meeting yesterday (28 March) with Prime Minister David Cameron at Downing Street, where he heard of the ongoing work to prepare for the Games, as well as legacy plans.

It coincided with a three-day inspection visit by the IOC and the government's publication of Beyond 2012 - a document outlining the breadth and depth of the 2012 legacy.

In addition to the sporting legacy benefits, including the Sainsbury's School Games, it is also anticipated London 2012 will deliver a £3m boost through domestic and global tourism.

The government also hopes the Games will support a new culture of volunteering through the 70,000 Games Makers and 8,000 Team London Ambassadors working throughout the event.

Rogge said: "We can already see tangible results in the remarkable regeneration of East London. This great historical city has created a legacy blueprint for future Games hosts."

Culture secretary Jeremy Hunt; sport minister Hugh Robertson; and Sebastian Coe, chair of LOCOG, also met with Rogge at Downing Street.
