London · Olympics

Official Opening

There was a big “ooooooohhhh” from the audience as the stadium lights went out and all that was left were some spotlights on the centre of the stadium where it had been set up with the balloons and the big button for the child (Nine-year-old Niamh Clarke-Willis from Hackney) to press to release them.
