STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • 2012 Summer Olympics in London just four months away
  • Pose your questions on the Games to CNN World Sport's Don Riddell
  • Riddell hosts a live webcast on CNN.com, CNN iPhone and iPad apps Wednesday

(CNN) -- We're just four months away from the London Olympics and the city is nearly ready to greet thousands of athletes and millions of visitors.

As part of CNN's coverage of London 2012, World Sport presenter Don Riddell will be presenting a live webcast on CNN.com and CNN iPhone and iPad apps on Wednesday at 5.30pm GMT, 6.30pm CET, 1.30pm ET.

Living and working in London, Don has reported on the Games since the British capital won the vote to stage the sporting showpiece in 2005.

To mark 200 days until the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games, British Prime Minister David Cameron held a meeting with his cabinet on court at the purpose-built handball arena. London will become the first city to host the Games three times when the action begins in July, having previously staged the Olympics in 1908 and 1948.
