By any reckoning the former Millennium Dome has been transformed since 2000.

The arena had its first taste of Olympic sporting action in 2009, when it hosted the World Gymnastics Championships.

Since 2009 it has also been the home of the ATP World Tour tennis finals, attracting the likes of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Britain's Andy Murray.
