The ceremony as a whole was very moving and I was constantly in awe of all the production, graphics and presenters, not to mention the athletes! It was a summer of sport with the fantastic Olympics and Paralympics lighting up London.

I for one thoroughly enjoyed every moment of both the Olympics and the Paralympics and having the amazing experience of visiting the stadium is something I will never forget!
