Olympic flame lit in Greece ….

Olympic flame relit  in London ….

The decision to have the Olympic cauldron inside the stadium for the duration of the Games is controversial, with organisers saying it is not designed to be a 'tourist attraction'

Torchbearer Austin Playfoot, 82, who was also in the 1948 torch relay, re-lights the cauldron this morning after it was moved to the edge of the Olympic Stadium

The new position of the cauldron will ensure track and field athletics events can take place in the stadium
