Mayor of London Boris Johnson has told ITV News that there were moments during the Olympic opening ceremony, where he was "fogged" by what was happening. Mr Johnson said that he could not follow some of the themes, but admitted that the "excitement carried it through".
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?
It was a moment they and the rest of Britain will never forget. The young athletes describe what it was like to be part of history.
The Queen dropped in on the Olympic village today to wish good luck to Team GB athletes, who shared their experience on Twitter.
