We've all seen the photo of Amelia Hempleman-Adams standing on top of the London Eye, but what of the other torchbearers carrying the flame round London this weekend? We rummaged in our Flickrpool for some of the best shots and came up with photos of Dizzee Rascal and Paloma Faith, but also torchbearers chosen for their charity and community work, like Paul Freedman, Tahmina Begum and 1948 Olympian Ronald Cooper. If you know who any of the other torchbearers are please let us know in the comments.

The torch passed through Lewisham, Bromley and Croydon this morning – the BBC's street by street map (with times) is probably the best way to work out where to see it.
