Danny Boyle has said everyone who was part of the London 2012 opening ceremony was "honoured" to work with the "wonderful" stuntman Mark Sutton.
The event's creative director said Mr Sutton had formed "a brilliant partnership with Gary Connery" to make crowd inside "the (Olympic Stadium) gasp" and leave them with "indelible memories" in parachuting in as James Bond and the Queen.
Mr Boyle also paid joking tribute to Mr Sutton for helping to smuggle in treats for the Olympic team in the hard slog towards planning the global show, saying:
Courtesy of loading the helicopter in Essex, and thereby avoiding the official security ban on alcohol in the park during rehearsal, he and Gary also smuggled with them an excellent bottle of wine for the crew each evening and before we all went home we would often drink their health.
They of course, as top stuntmen, never touched a drop but they sensed our need of occasional fortification!
