Olympic gold medal hero Luke Campbell said he was overwhelmed when he was welcomed back to his home city of Hull by cheering fans.
Queen Victoria Square was packed tonight with people who had come to see the boxer - the city's only medalist at London 2012.
When he stepped out on to the balcony of the City Hall draped in a Union Flag there was a deafening scream from below.
Campbell thanked the crowd and told them how proud he was to come from Hull.
He was joined by hammer finalist Alex Smith, who is also from the city.
And there were even more cheers when Campbell was joined by his partner Lynsey and two-year-old son Leo.
