    Chicago has unveiled a new adviser in its campaign to host the 2016 Olympics: Lord Coe, the chairman of London's 2012 organising committee. Pat Ryan, head of Chicago's bid, said that Coe and other senior officials from London 2012 have provided advice as the city attempts to beat Rio de Janeiro, Madrid and Tokyo to follow London as the host city for the Games. With a year to go until the International Olympic Committee makes its final decision, Chicago is the book-makers' favourite.
