West Ham United will have many of the running costs met by the taxpayer when they move to the £700m Olympic Stadium next year, the BBC has learnt.

Critics say it means the Premier League club will get their new home virtually rent free.

West Ham won the bid to occupy the stadium, which was built for the London 2012 Olympics, and are expected to move from their Upton Park ground in August 2016.

I cannot believe this. All the money in the PL and West Ham get to have their new stadium bought and paid for by Joe Public. This makes an absolute mockery of so-called "Financial Fair Play".
