Former Olympic champion and member of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (Locog) Jonathan Edwards said: "The torch relay is literally around the corner and it's all systems go." He also explained the moment the torches are held together to pass on the flame:
The kiss is the big moment when the flame is passed from torchbearer to torchbearer and obviously you have to get it right - you don't want the flame to go out.
It's called a kiss. You have to hold them together for about ten seconds to make sure the flame passes and then the next runner runs off for their 300m stint.
