John Jenkins was nominated for his unswerving commitment to Portsmouth FC. Having worked there for 50 years - with a short break to be a pilot during World War II - he retired - only to take up stewarding at the club's Fratton Park as a volunteer!
Popular former Portsmouth FC defender Linvoy Primus carried the flame in the city - his leg took a while because so many people wanted to shake his hand or greet him as he made his way along the streets.
This spectator looked keen to see the relay as it passed through Portsmouth.
People lined the route waving streamers and holding umbrellas as the rain continued along the south coast.
Residents in Tillington, Petworth, had some sound advice for the torchbearers as the relay passed through the village.
Sara Tremlett, 64, from West Chiltington, carried the flame at Petworth House in West Sussex. Sara, who is district commissioner of the Lord Leconfield Pony Club, travelled to Sydney and Athens to see the Olympics there.
Ryan Hodd Jarvis, 15, from Petworth, was one of the bearers at Cass Sculpture Foundation at Goodwood. He wants to become a police officer after university.
Paul Zetter also held the torch. He was the founder of the Sports Aid Foundation which has helped athletes such as London 2012 chairman and Olympian Sebastian Coe, as well as Olympians Sally Gunnell and Ben Ainslie.
Ryan Hodd Jarvis and Paul Zetter met Thomas Heatherwick, who is designing the cauldron to hold the flame at the Olympic Stadium, and Wilfred Cass, who co-founded the park.
A cheery resident in Petersfield, Hampshire had made a special effort for the torch relay.
School children welcomed the flame to Petworth House, West Sussex.

It may not be the prettiest building on the south coast, but this multi-storey car park in Worthing fulfilled its potential on Monday as a relay viewing platform.
The last torchbearer of the day, nurse Karen West, lit the flame at the evening celebration in Brighton.
