On Friday the Olympic Torch made its way through Kent to London – and one policeman on the route decided he wouldn’t just provide security, but entertainment, too.
In front of hundreds of onlookers in Sevenoaks the motorcycle outrider threw some dance moves.
The routine, which was filmed and uploaded to YouTube, included a bit of breakdancing and a flamboyant crotch thrust.
It certainly made for an arresting scene, with the crowd screaming and whistling their appreciation for the spontaneous performance.
Later in the day a Royal Marine Commando abseiled with the flame into the Tower of London.
He held the flame up proudly for media representatives gathered to witness its arrival in the host city.
Saturday was the flame’s first full day in London, with proceedings beginning at the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, in the south east of the capital, receiving a rapturous reception from thousands of well-wishers.
A carnival atmosphere spread through the streets of the Olympic borough as the rain of recent weeks gave way to brilliant sunshine and bands played for the crowds.
People of all ages and many nationalities turned out for the torch as the party mood took hold around the newly restored Cutty Sark clipper.
