The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) has said that they will investigate claims that Olympic uniforms are being made in "sweatshop" conditions in Indonesia.
Gridlock on London's streets was averted as the controversial Olympic route network took effect on Wednesday morning with many motorists staying away. But congestion on some routes, and further problems on tube and train services, renewed worries about the capital's ability to cope.
Friday night, Facebook shook under the swear words coming from a particular American friend's keyboard. It started innocently enough. "Ooof England." Then it escalated to "Holy Shit England". Finally, it was "STOP LONDON. JUST STOP" (thereby proving that strong statements need not include f-bombs).
The 2012 Olympic Games have been a huge success for the country, both in terms of winning medals and delivering a fantastic spectacle to the world.
