The historic moment of the arrival of the "Olympic Flame" from Olympus in Greece at Wembley Stadium, site of the 14th Olympiad of the modern age. The anchor man of the relay of runners who bore the flame from the birthplace of the games is pictured just as he entered Wembley Stadium and before the permanent torch, which will be kept burning for the duration of the games, was lit.
