The Olympic Games begin
The London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony takes place tonight, and Cardiff is lined up to play host to some of the upcoming Olympic sporting events.
Olympic football began on Wednesday in the Millennium Stadium, with the Great Britain women’s football team beating New Zealand 1-0. However, sporting achievements were overshadowed by a mistake which saw the South Korean flag being used in place of the North Korean flag, leading to the North Korean team walking off the pitch in Glasgow.
Under Olympic rules, the hosting city cannot hold any events until after the opening ceremony, but other cities including Cardiff have started holding events to fit everything into the packed Olympic schedule.
