London's mayor has secured funding to give away 125,000 free tickets to local school children for the 2012 London Olympics.

Mayor Boris Johnson says the deal means one in eight students will be able to attend Olympic events for free.

London's Olympic organizing committee had already made 50,000 tickets available to the mayor for city schools. The committee agreed Thursday that an extra 75,000 tickets will also be funded by its hospitality program.
