The final stop on our big Olympics tour was to Hyde Park for BT London Live. This was basically five large screens showing live olympics action with concession stands around the outside selling Olympic tat and over priced food and drink. There was also a main stage that was showing a number of different groups and solo artists over the two weeks. If I am honest this was the real reason that we went as Paul Carrack was playing a short set. We settled ourselves in front of the main stage which when we arrived was showing Chariots of Fire, Vangellis getting yet more royalties. Following which the final of the men’s football was shown. There were a large number of both Mexicans and Brazilians in the crowd and the latter sportingly acknowledged the former at the end of the game, which was a nice touch. Then there were the Team GB winning Taekwondo medalist paraded before out came Mr Carrack.
As you can see from the pictures below we were very lucky with the weather and the day was a great way to round off our Olympics.
