Well, I have to eat my own words, I was one of the sceptics, infact I still think it was financially a bad idea BUT what a blinder they have played, from the organisers to Team GB to the BBC coverage to the opening/closing ceremonies, a resounding success.

You never know, it might do us some good in the near future, Britain should now be seen as a country THAT CAN.

No but I did go to the boxing so I got to see Luke Campbell in the quarter final.

it was my Dads ticket so it was quite a day, had a beer and then missed the bus home

Great day, great atmosphere, very proud to be there.

I think we ought to spare a special thought for he performance of the girls. Despite some of them coming from very humble backgrounds I think the team spirit was evident to everyone and they were always smiling and looked a million dollars. I think they were exceptional - and don't forget, they had to do it all whilst riding on top of a London Cab!

I heard on the radio today that the Spice Girls looked like they were standing on top of a London Cab holding onto Zimmer Frames
