It has been two weeks of high emotion, celebration and the occasional tear, but now the Olympics is over.
Great Britain won 65 medals, our best return in more than a century.
But, in this brief lull between the Olympics and Paralympics, attention turns to the Olympic legacy.
It was one of the reasons London were awarded the games in the first place, it promised to inspire a generation.
Michael Sibert has been to find out if the Olympic legacy is on track
With cities that contain some of the biggest Jamaican and afro-carribbean communities outside of London, it is fair to say that the success of the Jamaican team during the Olympics has gone down well here.
The big star athletes like Bolt and Blake say they loved their time in Birmingham, and praised the local community there. Lee Comley went to see what impact it will have in the future.
Just got home! Working through a lovely pile of cards, favourite so far: http://t.co/gr5F9Qu5
