Tottenham has dropped its legal action over the future of London's Olympic Stadium.

The move follows the collapse of the deal to award the stadium to West Ham after the London 2012 Games.

Tottenham and Leyton Orient both lodged complaints after West Ham initially won the tendering process to take control of the Olympic Stadium following next summer's games.

After growing concerns that a lengthy courtroom battle could leave the stadium empty for years, the OPLC came to an agreement with the government and Mayor of London Boris Johnson that the ground should remain in public ownership.

It is thought a legal hearing into the matter scheduled for Tuesday will now not take place.

West Ham have confirmed they will look to lease the Olympic Stadium, but it remains to be seen if Spurs would contemplate making a bid to do the same.

Spurs, who had wanted to remove the athletics track, are currently moving forward with plans to redevelop White Hart Lane.
