US President George W. Bush says he'll come to the Beijing Olympics as originally planned.

In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Bush said he views the Games as a sporting event.

Bush says he has no reason to use the Olympics as a way to highlight the Darfur issues.

Earlier this week, Hollywood film maker Steven Spielberg resigned as the artistic advisor for the Games, alleging that China was doing too little to help settle the Darfur crisis.
