A teenage boy who carried the Olympic Flame a few days before he took his A-level exams said he was thrilled to receive three A* grades and two As.
Jamie Green, 18, of North Yorkshire, said he was finding it hard to decide which he was happier about - being an Olympic torchbearer for Scarborough in June, or discovering he had achieved some of the highest A-level results in Yorkshire.
Jamie said: "I had the torch-carrying event on the Monday, then I had my French exam and English exam later that week...
"Both are absolutely brilliant but for different reasons. The torch was a once-in-a-lifetime experience but these results will set me up for the rest of my life."
