West Ham United will insist on the removal of the running track if they go to the Olympic stadium.

Gold hinted a change in the dimensions of the stadium's stands was key to him sanctioning an exit from the Boleyn Ground after 112 years.

"I won't go there if I have to look over a running track," he said.

"There are certain things I can't share with you because of the confidentiality agreement. We will only go there if it is fit for use.

"But I believe we are in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Let's face it. They've built a stadium - albeit wrong shape and size."
