Sir Roger Bannister, the runner of the historic first four-minute mile in Oxford in the 1950s - was back in the city today to carry the Olympic torch.
He was one of many torchbearers who took part in the route that went through Henley-on-Thames, Bisham, Windsor - where it travelled through the grounds of the Castle watched by Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip - and then Ascot and Reading. Glen Goodman reports.
Today's spectacular finale on the Thames for the Olympic flame marked the end of a seventy-day journey around the British Isles.
