The 2012 Olympic flame has been lit in Greece and has begun its long journey to London.
At a ceremony in ancient Olympia, a mirror was used to light the flame using the rays of the sun.
It will now go on a tour of Greece before being handed over to the London Olympics team in Athens next week.
James Pearce reports from Olympia.
