The Closing Ceremony

The Olympic Stadium

The Daily Mail has a fantastic set of photographs from last night’s London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony, including some lovely clear shots of Damien Hirst’s Union Jack.

Although the event didn’t quite clear the bar set by the Opening Ceremony, the event certainly served as a poignant reminder of all the great and wonderful things that have occurred over the past two weeks.

Moreover, beyond the official Ceremony, the BBC — who have done a fantastic job throughout the Games — had some truly phenomenal videos in the lead-up to last night’s broadcast. For those of you in the U.K. that didn’t have a chance to watch live, iPlayer has the various retrospectives in full.
