Dame Katherine said that with the 'right support from the government' there could be a potential for London to host the Games in 2036

UK Sport chair Dame Katherine Grainger has hinted at the possibility of London bidding for the 2036 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Grainger outlined plans to "transform sport" in the UK.

She said that with the "right support from the government" there could be a potential for London to host the Games in 2036, as there is now "the expertise and foundation to realise the ultimate sporting ambition". She added that the home games could be coupled with the ambition for Team GB to top the medal table.
