We're all looking back at the London 2012 Olympics and missing the good times


Today marks the 4th anniversary of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony. In the run-up to the next Olympics in Rio nostalgia is running high and people are remembering how good it felt to be British in 2012.

It seems that since then, our pride in ourselves has taken a dip, if Twitter is anything to go by. Using the hashtag #London2012, users seem to feel that Brexit and other recent events have torn us apart.

Let's begin by remembering the opening ceremony, termed the greatest show on earth.

We nailed it.

London and the rest of the UK looked stunning as a backdrop for Olympic events, and we are clearly still so proud.

Unfortunately, some feel this pride has ebbed away in the last few years.

At least someone is still proud to be British

Cheer up though everyone, remember when this happened?
