Super day in Trafalgar square today as the British Olympic team were paraded in front of the nation to congratulate them on their achievements. It was lovely to see all the guys and girls in the flesh, and equally lovely to see the nation come out en masse to celebrate the successes of the summer.
I did attempt to take some photos with my phone, but sadly the event proved that my skills as a photographer are sorely lacking as the large majority turned out to be rather awful. Which is all rather a shame as I had hoped to get some snaps of the cyclists and swimmers in particular. Alas I’ll have to make do with these slightly better snaps from the BBC website and try to pretend they’re mine.
Anyway, it was a fun morning, and to cap it all off Boris gave a typically raucous speech to leave the crowd in raptures as only he can.
