The first torchbearer of the day was Ceinwen Giles who was diagnosed with cancer just weeks after giving birth to her daughter. She carried the flame at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Deptford
Campaigner Doreen Lawrence, mother of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence, carried the flame to the learning centre she set up in her son's memory in Deptford, south-east London.
Doreen Lawrence passed the flame to the young mayor of Lewisham, Keiran Lang, whom she nominated as a torchbearer.
Later in the morning, 4x100m gold medallist Marlon Devonish took the flame for a dash of honour on the track at Crystal Palace stadium
Abbe Stapleton was swamped by crowds on Croydon's London Road - the site of some of London's worst rioting last August. A combination of Olympic fever and the start of the school holidays meant the crowds were massive.
Footballer Michael Owen - who owns four rescue dogs - walked with the flame through Battersea Dogs home with a Staffordshire bull terrier called Rory.
Stephen Ireland had to snake his way through the crowds in Sutton. He helped to raise over £10,000 for Marie Curie Cancer by taking part in the Great Escape Challenge in 2010 and 2011.
British number one tennis player Andy Murray carried the flame on to Centre Court at Wimbledon, just 15 days after he lost the final there to Roger Federer. No tears this time from Andy, who appeared to love every minute of his time as a torchbearer.
At the end of his stint of the relay Andy Murray passed the flame on to Venus Williams, who joked that she didn't want her hair to catch alight. Venus is usually on fire at Wimbledon (metaphorically speaking) having been crowned champion five times.
It's two weeks late and looks very different from the trophy they usually give me at Wimbledon, thinks Venus Williams. But the Olympic torch is suitably bling for the glamorous tennis superstar, who ran her leg of the relay at the world famous All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
Holly Holmes carried the flame in Wandsworth. The 13-year-old was born with hemiplegia - a condition that causes severe physical problems down the right-side of her body - and epilepsy, which was successfully treated with radical brain surgery when she was five years old. She also has a form of autism.
One final tennis star of the day had an important job - to light the cauldron at Tooting Bec Common at the end of day 66 - and Tim Henman aced it. The former British number one looked thrilled to be part of proceedings.
