Joe looks back at London's Olympic history

You might have heard but there's a bit of a 'do' going on in London this summer.

The Olympic games are now so close, you can almost taste them - but it's not the first time the 'greatest show on earth' has come to the capital.

They've been held in London twice before, the first time, over 100 years ago!

It was 1908, when the games were first staged in London and the build up was a little bit different... as Joe explains.
