Clever: The closing ceremony convertibles were pure genius. Understated, profound, best in the world. Just like the games. Clever BMW to get the most out of its Olympic sponsorship. Great detailing. First new badge on a Rolls-Royce for 108 years. Shows how Britain has changed. Closing ceremony didn’t have the deft touch of the opening one. One tweeter decided only acts giving 20% discount could be hired, another cheerfully hoped the Spice Girls might be shot into space from the cannon. Well, Rio will be different. I thought it might have made a better show with a carnival float or two, but what a challenge to match London as a backdrop. Sunday’s marathon was worth watching if only to marvel at the streets and the buildings and the matchless organisation.
