The opening ceremony of the London Olympics is due to take place later after seven years of preparations.

The three-hour spectacle in the Olympic Stadium is expected to be viewed by a global TV audience of 1 billion.

The final day of the torch relay will see the Olympic flame taken along the Thames - and then used to light the cauldron that will shine during 16 days of sport.

The Games will see the biggest UK peacetime security operation mounted.
