London: The 2012 London Olympics will be better than the Beijing Games, a British minister said Sunday.

Jeremy Hunt, who the minister for culture, Olympics, media and sport affairs, told the Sunday Times he is confident that London can outshine Beijing, reports Xinhua.

"I believe we'll be better than the Beijing Games. They did a brilliant job, but it was a Game that was playing to China's strengths, and about China's role in the modern world," he said.

"We have something different to say. London is one of the great global cities -- I believe it's the greatest city on the planet, and this is our chance to showcase that to the whole world," he added.

Hunt also described the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony on 27th as "absolutely stunning", saying it would "knock us sideways" and be the "biggest single advert for Britain in its history".

Beijing Olympic Games were widely regarded as the best ever.
