Sande's Olympics stint swells album sales

Emeli Sande's appearances at the Olympic opening and closing ceremonies have helped her to overtake Adele with the biggest selling album of the year so far.

Her debut release 'Our Version Of Events' saw its sales swell by a third during London 2012, compared to the previous month.

Sande still has some way to go before she outsells Adele though.

Adel's second album '21' has racked up UK sales of 4.4 million and stands as the fifth biggest-selling album of all-time.
