For many of those who have suffered life changing injuries, sport plays a hugely important part in their recovery  and life beyond as you have heard.

This is particularly true for those men and women injured in the service of their country.

By the nature of their profession these men and women are often very active and undoubtedly highly competitive.

The Invictus Games this September will give these inspirational people the opportunity to showcase their talent and in doing so, prove that anything is really possible.

The Games do not stand in isolation but are part of a broader legacy; there are many fantastic organisations supporting those leaving the Armed Forces, whether injured or not.

But we want to encourage many more to support where they can.

I am delighted that BT has joined us in making these games a reality. They have a fantastic track record in support to those leaving the Armed Forces and to sport in general.

I hope many other businesses will follow BT and Jaguar Landrover's lead in recognising the fantastic contribution that these men and women can make to their organisations.

The four days of inspirational sport in September will allow us to highlight and applaud the character of these service men and women in the iconic Olympic Venues here in London watched by the best supporters in the world but this is just the start.

I hope everyone will show their admiration by snapping up tickets when they go on sale tomorrow morning and cheering from the side lines.
