AP's Fergus Bell, a Londoner, shares his impressions of the closing ceremony from his seat in Olympic Stadium:
When it comes to The Kinks frontman Ray Davies, I'm feeling a little bit lost. This is way before my time. The crowd seem to be enjoying it but I think the younger members of the audience would rather have had a second number from One Direction.
