The summer of Olympic and Paralympic sporting success will be etched on the memories of the public in the same way as the World Cup winning year of 1966, the Prime Minister said today.
David Cameron hailed the London games as the "best ever" as he thanked gamesmakers at a reception in No 10 this morning.
The "golden summer" of sport had united the country and shown that Britain had the "confidence to deliver big things", he added.
