Olympic Torch to be carried on the tube

The Olympic Flame will be carried on the London Underground tomorrow in a special visit away from the main Torch route.

Service Operator John Light, 64, will hold the Torch as a train adorned with the Olympic Rings travels along the District Line from Wimbledon to Wimbledon Park.


Olympic flame rides the Tube

The Olympic flame has taken the Tube as it continues its week-long journey through the capital. A total of 144 torchbearers, including rower James Cracknell and skier Chemmy Alcott, carried the flame 43 miles across London.
