Mayor Johnson is confident about the hand-over segment, an eight-minute calling card inviting the world to reconvene in London in four years' time.

Expectations for tonight's performance are shared by UK tourists and athletes.

As the chairman of the London Olympic Park Reconstruction team, Johnson has initiated a legacy action plan. He's hoping world investors will contribute their ideas for the construction and development of the Park.
