Tour de France winner kicks off Olympic opening ceremony

Bradley Higgins, the first British rider to win the Tour de France, started off proceedings at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

After a countdown Higgins stepped onto the stage and rung a large bell sending a balloon into the sky. A choir then began to sing a medley including the well known hymn Oh Jerusalem as an audience of 80,000 began to watch a performance that was to last nearly three hours.
