Olympics bosses have suspended the Olympic ticket resale system on the day it was launched after problems with the official website.

The site, run by Ticketmaster, was slow to update sessions which had sold out.

Games organiser Locog said it would reopen once the issues had been fixed. Yesterday Locog stopped customers from putting Olympic tickets up for resale but it was still possible for people to buy tickets.

The process was designed to allow people to try to resell their unwanted London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic tickets to others willing to buy them.

Hundreds of people had been complaining on Twitter..

Locog said in a statement: “We have told Ticketmaster to suspend the resale system while they investigate some issues customers have been experiencing.

“We want buying and selling Olympic and Paralympic tickets through Ticketmaster to be a good customer experience, and so we will re-open the site once Ticketmaster have resolved these issues.”
