British Queen celebrates


More than two million spectators have turned out to watch the first three days of London 2012, organisers have said.

Some 856,000 fans, including the football crowds and a "conservative" estimate of 500,000 for the road race, watched on Saturday, with a further 900,000 turning out on Sunday, Locog said.


A further 370,000 spectators watched on Monday, meaning attendee rates for the three days were 86%, 92% and 88% respectively.
