Peter Eriksson, UK Athletics Paralympic head coach, declared: "For Britain it is the best night in athletics in the Paralympic Games in history."
The 80,000-spectators at the packed stadium may have expected the veteran mentor who, from 1984 through to the Beijing 2008 Paralympics had coached athletes to win an incredible 119 medals, to have taken ParalympicsGB's medal rush in his stride.
Instead Eriksson spent the whole evening bouncing around in delight as he, his handpicked team of coaches and fellow athletes on the squad roared their support from the stands.
