Foreign journalists have voted London 2012 as the best Olympics they have ever seen.
They are praising the friendliness of the people in Britain.
“You walk past someone and they say hi, which is not something you associate with the reserved English,” the Daily Star quoted one journalist as saying.
Gary Lemke, of the South African Media Organisation, said: “It is my fifth Olympics and the best I’ve been to.”
Roger McMillan, from Australian Sailing magazine, added: “The thing I’ve been impressed with is the friendliness. Everyone’s happy and getting involved in the spirit of the Games.”
