“This is the most successful team of athletes this country has ever assembled. You brought this country together in a way we never expected. You routed the doubters and you’ve scattered the gloomsters. And for the first time in living memory you caused tube train passengers to burst into spontaneous conversation with their neighbours about subjects other than trodden on toes. You showed every child in this country that success is not just about talent and luck but about grit and guts and hard work. You showed fantastic grace in victory and amazing courage in defeat. You produced such paroxysms of tears and joy on the sofas of Britain that you probably not only inspired a generation but helped to create one as well! And all propelled by no stimulant more sinister than the beetroot juice favoured by David Weir. You wracked up more medals per head than any other country. You brought sport home. But above all, you brought home the truth about us and about this country – that when we put our minds to it there is no limit to what Britain can achieve. You’ve made everybody very proud and you’ve given hope for the future.“

Boris Johnson, London Mayor
