With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun.
The closing ceremony offered a sensory blast including rock ‘n’ roll rickshaws, dustbin percussionists, an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red tunics and bearskin hats.
There was a show-stopping reunion of the Spice Girls and a comedy sequence featuring Monty Python’s Eric Idle performing “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” accompanied by Roman centurions, Scottish bagpipers and a human cannonball.
