Tottenham today won the latest match in a legal battle over the future of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.

A High Court judge in London gave the club the go-ahead to challenge a decision made in favour of West Ham for the use of the £486million venue in Stratford, east London, after the Games end next summer.

Earlier this year the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) opted for a bid put forward by West Ham.

But today Tottenham successfully applied to Mr Justice Collins for permission to mount a legal challenge.

The judge's task at this stage was only to decide whether Tottenham has an "arguable" case.

A further hearing with full arguments from all sides will now have to be held.
