Los Angeles Residents Welcome You To London 2012 Olympics

DAVID Beckham and Leona Lewis welcome you to the London Olympics, says the Star.

Becks lives in Los Angeles, so does Leona. But what the hell, they were born in London and that will do.

The Times leads with pictures of Londoners who live in London, and a load of tourists, celebrating the arrival of the fearsomely expensive sporting event in four years time They are waving flags beating the Olympics logo – that picture of Lisa Simpson felating on an unknown IOC member.

“Just 1,432 days to go,” leads the Mirror. And we are a-flurry of excitement. Will the stadium be ready? Will the city be clean? Will knife fighting be an Olympic sport?

Will Boris Johnson be able to wave that flag all the time, or will he drop it?
