Olympic flame is lit in Greece

The Olympic flame which will eventually shine over London 2012 has been lit in Greece, at the site of the ancient games.

It will arrive in Britain later this month for a 70 day relay before it reaches the Olympic stadium for the opening ceremony.

The BBC's sports editor David Bond reports from the birthplace of the Olympics.
