LONDON (AP)

Nearly four months after Michael Phelps ended his glittering Olympic career in London, the final seats of the swimming venue are being removed.

The Olympic Park was handed over by games organizers on Tuesday to the body in charge of the long-term use of the park.

The London Legacy Development Corporation is turning the athletes' village into apartments, removing temporary facilities and dismantling seats at venues.

But uncertainty lingers over the Olympic Stadium, with tenants yet to be chosen.

Premier League club West Ham wants to play in the stadium, but the arena might not re-open until 2016 after being downsized from 80,000 to 60,000 seats.
