"I feel invincible" - torchbearer who survived car crash

A torchbearer who survived a car crash said he felt 'invincible' after carrying the Flame in Theale. Joe Robinson, 21, spent two months at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford after he broke his back and fractured his skull. Just 11 months later he cycled from Paris to Oxford, raising £37,000.

And the husband of torchbearer Gillian Hurley said how amazing it was to see his wife carrying the Olympic Torch. Kevin said the charity fundraiser and cub leader felt scared this morning but had a hug grin on her face as she carried the Flame.
