One of the many runners who carried the Olympic Torch in 2012 – Gordon Banks appeared at Wembley stadium and loved the moment!
“It was fantastic, it really was,” enthused Banks. “Coming up Wembley Way brought back a lot of memories for me. It’ll be terrific [the venue]. I can’t believe the interest, the publicity and it can only be a good thing,” he continued.
“Seeing all the fans and the children here today, they will now watch these Games on TV and say ‘I want to do that!’ and it’s a terrific thing for this country.”
