I was thrilled with the opening to the Olympic games, it depicted the English history and told a story, I sat glued to the TV, I had a few near tears when we remembered those that were no longer with us and Emeli Sandé sang Abide with me,Joyous that children were a major part of the ceremony and a big shout out to Sir Tim Berners-Lee the inventor of WWW as without him I couldn’t be writing this now so I thought very apt that he was there too.
Very sad that Muhammad Ali, a 1960 Olympic gold medallist , came back for the Opening Ceremony and looked so frail (God Bless)
The Olympic cauldron was simply amazing,it was made up of a copper kettle representing each country that was taking part in the games and each kettle was petal shaped and once lit they all joined up to make the cauldron.
You can see it in it’s glory here
Wherever you are in the world good luck in the games.
