Patriotic fervour ahead of Danny Boyle spectacular

The stream of spectators arriving for Danny Boyle's highly anticipated 'Isle of Wonders' ceremony for the Olympic Games made it clear where their loyalties lay.

Team GB appears to be made up not just by the athletes but of the crowds as well, with the Union Jack splashed accross glasses, t-shirts and even wigs.

After a slow build-up, Britain is officially Olympics crazy, and for miles around the Stratford Stadium the cheers of those lucky enough to have a seat at the show of a lifetime could be heard.
