Iran on Monday said it might boycott the 2012 London Olympics because of the event's "racist" logo which resembles the word Zion, the official IRNA news agency reported.

The secretary general of the National Olympic Committee said Iran had made the complaint in a letter to the International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge and was waiting for a response.

The London logo shows the numbers 2012 in four jagged multi-coloured figures and was launched in 2007.
