[PHOTOS] Britain fires up the world: London gets 2012 Games under way

We all wondered who would light the torch - and in the end the organisers sprang a surprise as seven teenage athletes lit copper petals - brought in by each of the 204 countries - which converged in spectacular fashion to form the cauldron in the middle of the Olympic Stadium. Outside the fireworks were equally impressive.

Sir Steve Redgrave, five-time gold medallist was the champion chosen to conclude the torch's 8,000-mile journey round Britain, but there was no doubting the night's biggest star, David Beckham, who wasn't selected for the Team GB football team, but transported the flame by speedboat under Tower Bridge to the stadium. It was the coolest moment of an amazing show.

Loved it loved it loved it!!!! The Industrial Revolution part was my favourite and the forging of the rings at the end of it was just inspired and I never saw it coming. FABULOUS!!!!!! Also loved the raising of the couldron too, just excellent....well done Danny Boyle!
