London Mayor Boris Johnson is remaining tight-lipped about who will be lighting the torch at tonight's Opening Ceremony of London Olympics 2012.

He told Mark Austin: "I can't give the game away. I can't tell you who it is. I've got an idea but I'm not going to tell you. It's not going to be Britain packaged for an international audience - it really is about us."
