Watch the Ben Ainslie press conference live here

The Olympic legend to announce his America's Cup plans

Monday January 9th 2012, Author: James Boyd, Location: United Kingdom

At 1000 GMT in central London Ben Ainslie will be announcing 'his plans post-Olympic Games'. Following some impressively poor leaks over the last few days, even including an image of the boat that will be announced tomorrow, it looks like Britain's Olympic hero is to be campaigning an AC45 on the America's Cup World Series intrigingly in the colours of 'Ben Ainslie Racing'. This is believed to be somehow associated with Oracle Racing, but exactly who is paying the bills we hope will be explained at 1000. While Grant Simmer is expected to be running the show, as he did in the latter days of TeamOrigin, it is likely that Andrew Simpson will be on board but whether Iain Percy will jump ship from Artemis Racing is at present another unknown.

All will be revealed we hope...
