It was “mindblowing”, it was “crazy”, it was “insane”. The athletes who brought home 185 medals and inspired hundreds of thousands of people to flood the streets of London struggled to find the words to describe a celebratory trip of just under two miles that was the end of a rather longer journey for most of them.

It was, as London mayor Boris Johnson put it – in a show-stealing speech on the Mall that again left the prime minister, David Cameron, in the shade – the “final tear-sodden sundering climax” to Britain’s Olympic summer. ‘You brought this country together.’
