Teenager Alice Ellison took a step back in time this morning when she re-enacted a famous scene from the Oscar-winning movie Chariots of Fire.

Alice, carrying the torch as part of the Olympic Torch Relay, re-enacted the Quad run, around Trinity College, Cambridge.

The accomplished equestrian was nominated by her school, Netherhall, Cambridge. The event took place at 6.30am this morning in front of an invited audience of hundreds who braved the appalling conditions.

After the run the torch was then taken by punt down the River Cam, travelling passed St John's College, before the relay headed towards St Ives.
