WELCOME TO AFP'S OLYMPIC LIVE REPORT on the final day of the Games.
After 16 days of thrilling action in London, we're now in the home straight -- but there is still plenty more to come.
For many, today's highlight will be the spectacular closing ceremony from 2000 GMT which is rumoured to feature British pop stars like The Who, The Spice Girls and George Michael.
There is also the men's basketball final, which pitches the US's Dream Team against Spain, and the men's marathon to look out for before then.
How will we cope without all this excitement? Who knows, but in the meantime, stay with us and enjoy the last day.
