The day's relay began with Ali Abdillahi in Coventry and visited the city's cathedral. The old cathedral was burnt out in a German bombing raid in 1940 and a modern one built adjacent to it in the 1950s.
To celebrate its heritage as a seat of motor manufacturing in Britain, Coventry has a museum dedicated to road transport.
Ali's route took him past Coventry's Transport Museum. The 18-year-old is a former asylum-seeker from Somalia who was fostered by a British couple. At 13, Ali could barely speak English, however he went on to pass nine GCSEs, gain a BTech in sports and is now part of Coventry City FC's academy.
A fully clothed Sean O'Keefe carried the flame past a statue celebrating Coventry's famous legend of Lady Godiva. Sean has done voluntary work in Tanzania and South Africa as well as raising funds for UK charities Leukaemia Research, Marie Curie and Macmillan Trust.
Despite being registered blind, Bhanumati Dabhi is a dedicated volunteer and has been awarded Queen's Golden Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service. She also carried the flame in the city.
Triathlete Tim Don, who is the only Briton to have competed in all three Olympic triathlons since its inclusion in Sydney 2000, carried the flame at Coventry's Ricoh Arena. The 2006 world champion just missed out on selection for the London 2012 Games.
John Richards carried the flame around the grounds of Rugby School, where in 1823 a local lad called William Webb Ellis first ran with the ball and invented the game of rugby.
Torchbearer Fiona Warner carried the flame in Rugby but is pictured here in front of Althorp House with Earl Spencer, brother of Diana, Princess of Wales, and his wife Karen Gordon. The estate hosted an Olympic-themed Althorp School Games in celebration of the flame's visit.
Leonardo Cologna was one of several Italians to carry the flame on Monday. He took it through Dunchurch. In the background, the statue of politician Lord John Douglas Montague Scott has cheekily been decorated with an Olympic vest.
Torchbearer Robert Gomez took the torch on a canal boat ride through the ten sections of Foxton Locks, on the torch's journey between Dingley and Lubenham.
Phil Fuller, the last torchbearer of the day, lights the cauldron in Leicester's Abbey Park during the evening celebration.
