Spectators poured out of London's Olympic stadium early on Monday with ears still ringing from an eclectic symphony of British music, topped off by the thunderous roar of a firework spectacular.

The ceremony, which lasted just over three hours, featured a Technicolor pageant of London landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun.

Eighty-thousand fans packed the stadium for the 2012 finale, which organizers estimated was watched by a further 300 million people around the world.
