West Ham United have posted updated pictures of the Olympic Stadium on their Twitter account, as it nears readiness for football.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park played host to the Anniversary Games in the weekend just gone, and since then there have been preparations to get it ready for West Ham's first game at their new home when they take on Slovenian side NK Domzale in a Europa League qualifier on August 4.

However, the Hammers are set to face Juventus in a glamour friendly three days later to officially raise the curtain at the 60,000 capacity stadium.

With the stadium having to make adjustments from its usual footballing state when it has to host athletics events, which includes bringing retractable seating onto the athletics track itself, Hammers fans will surely have it rocking by the time The Old Lady come to town to take on their second London side of the summer.

The Italian side beat rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in a friendly in Melbourne on Tuesday, with star striker Paulo Dybala and Mehdi Benatia scoring the goals for the Serie A champions.

Later that same day came the news that the Turin side have completed the stellar signing of Napoli and Argentina star Gonzalo Higuain for what is reported to be the third largest transfer fee ever (BBC).

And it means Higuain could make his debut in what will already be a high profile affair when Slaven Bilic's side take on his new club, which will only mean more eyes on the Olympic Stadium as West Ham show off their new home to the world.
