Update: London's bid a winner!

What a surprise win for London. In a 54-50 vote, London edged out Paris for the rights to host the 2012 Summer Olympics. And that means plenty of new infrastructure and lawsuits. In the meantime, there will be celebrations.

The pre-decision betting all put Paris on top, so bookmakers probably lost a few quid. Here's to them losing more next year during the 2006 World Cup!
