  1. Apparently some of the fireworks were added digitally, I think there were footprints if I remember rightly, a bit cheeky! That aside it was an amazing open ceremony I think we all thought (gulp) how are we going to top that?! The birds nest stadium is a fantastic structure, can’t wait to see what London produces!
