From parkour free-running in the streets of Plaistow, to bouncing on an inflatable Stonehenge in Southwark. Or from a boxing club in Clapton - via a pop-up bathouse in Barking - to a jazz-filled afternoon at a floating market in Bow.

Here, in sounds and images, the BBC World Service explores how Londoners have been spending their time during the Olympic fortnight.

Audio by Francesca Panetta for BBC World Service. Photography by Alex Hocking. Additional music by Frank Williams and James Lascelles.
