The men's marathon is always the last athletic event of the Olympics. As you didn't need a ticket I went into London to have a look but tens of thousands of other people had the same idea. Here is Northumberland Ave lined by thousands waiting for the runners to go by.
This group had a bird's eye view from the base of Nelson's Column.
This was my view from outside Buckingham Palace!
This woman had the right idea - bring your own step.
And now it's all over. London will never seem the same again.
Until the paralympics - bring them on!
