The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has revealed it will stream the London Olympic Games live through YouTube.

Sports fans in 64 countries across Asia and Africa will have free access to 11 different HD channels. The coverage will be accessible on computers, tablets and mobile devices.

Coverage will only be available in countries where the digital rights have not already been acquired by another party, but the level of free access is unprecedented in those regions. The list of countries that will have access to the coverage includes India, Indonesia, Kenya and Nigeria.
