'South Africa Ready for Olympics'

South African President Jacob Zuma says his country's hosting of the FIFA World Cup is proof that it is ready to host the Olympics. Cape Town submitted a bid to host the 2004 Summer Olympics, but lost out to Athens, Greece.

"We have got the facilities. Those who take decisions (about the hosting of major sports event) have seen how South Africa is. I'm sure we could do it," Zuma said.
