'No trouble in ticket sales'

David Beckham's absence from Britain's Olympic team will have no impact on ticket sales for the soccer tournament starting in a few weeks' time, London 2012 chief executive Paul Deighton told Reuters.

Former England captain Beckham, 37, said on Thursday he had not been selected for the squad due to be announced next week by Team GB men's manager Stuart Pearce and British Olympic officials. "David is a great asset...the only point I'd make though is that the men's GB football games are pretty much sold out in any case.”
