Tottenham Hotspur appear to have dropped their legal action against the government over the use of the Olympic Stadium following the 2012 games.

Tottenham Hotspur appear to have dropped their long running legal battle with the government over the use of the Olympic Stadium.

Spurs had challenged the local government's decision to provide a loan to fund rival club West Ham's move into the stadium after the 2012 games.

However, that plan has now been scrapped and the stadium will instead remain in public ownership and be rented to a primary tenant.

A spokesperson from the Department for Culture Media and Sport said: "We have come to an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur where all parties will bear their own legal costs."

The legal hearing scheduled for tomorrow on the matter is no longer expected to take place.
