Pop legend Sir Cliff Richard has arrived at the Olympic Park but insisted he was there as a spectator rather than a performer.
Where did the chimneys come from? Where did the parachutist who doubled for the Queen land? And how did so many Mary Poppins manage to fly?

The Queen dropped in on the Olympic village today to wish good luck to Team GB athletes, who shared their experience on Twitter.
