IOC President Jacques Rogge will discuss the possibility of a South African bid for the Olympics when he meets the country's president next month. Rogge said he will raise the issue when he holds talks with Jacob Zuma in Johannesbury on the weekend of the 11th July World Cup final.

Jacques Rogge, IOC President said, "Cape Town already had a very good bid there. Then they focused on the FIFA World Cup on two occasions - on the first one when they lost the bid to Germany and the second one they won and I think it's quite absolutely normal that they think about the future - what's after the FIFA World Cup? So we are glad they are thinking about the Olympic Games. I will definitely take this up with the President when I meet with him at the FIFA World Cup final."
