London's Kew Gardens put on an impressive floral display for the arrival of the Olympic torch.

Around 20,000 plants were used to create the iconic Olympic rings, which can be appreciated by flight passengers arriving into the city ahead of the Games.

Emerging British tennis hopeful Oli Golding had the honour of holding the flame aloft at the famous botanical gardens.

The 18-year-old, who hails from nearby Twickenham, was a child actor before he pursued a sporting career.
