LONDON - London's Metropolitan Police say a man arrested in the death of a cyclist near the Olympic Park has been released on bail.

A double-decker bus carrying journalists at the London Olympics hit and killed the 28-year-old cyclist Wednesday night near the boundary of Olympic Park, the complex surrounding Olympic Stadium.

Police said early Thursday that a man in his mid-60s who had been arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released on bail.

The accident happened near facilities for Paralympic athletes and the Olympic Velodrome.
