• DOW Chemical has agreed to remove its logo from London's Olympic stadium but the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) said that it is not satisfied with the move and wants US giant to remove its sponsorship from the 2012 Games.

  • DOW said it was agreeing to the vision of the 2012 Games by waiving its sponsorship rights to place its brand on a controversial fabric wrap for the stadium which was objected by campaigners furious at the US conglomerate's links to the deadly Bhopal gas disaster.

  • Dow was made a sponsor of London 2012 by Lord Coe's organising committee (Locog) in August.

  • "The agreement between Dow and Locog was limited to branding of five 'test panels' that were to be removed in the months before the Games and were not part of the final design," Dow spokesman Scott Wheeler was quoted as saying by a British newspaper.
