Coe doesn't have a claim to flame; OLYMPICS.

LONDON 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe insists the choice of the person to light the Olympic flame on Friday is not his call.

Coe says he has an input but that the final decision will be taken by the opening ceremony creative teams headed by Danny Boyle and Stephen Daldry.

Coe also insisted he is not pushing the claims of his best friend Daley Thompson over Sir Steve Redgrave.

He said: "I have been very, very clear that it is not my call.

"I am certainly not pushing one person over another and it still has not been decided, absolutely not."
