Usain Bolt did not disappoint and all the participants of this years games were a credit to their respective nations. We witnessed every human emotion possible during London 2012 and everyone agrees that it has been a tremendous games.
Tonight marks the end of the Paralympics which is culminating in a spectacular closing ceremony. All the participants should be very proud of the high standards of performance that they attained, these achievements I am sure will be built upon at Rio de Janeiro in four years time.
Despite turmoil and war in some parts of our planet, the london games have been a welcome distraction to the troubles in the different parts of the world and will remain a beacon of tolerance and peace which is abundant within the human family.
