2012 Olympic Mascots Are Unveiled

The new Olympic mascots have been unveiled, and after rejecting ideas like giant pigeons and a walking Big Ben, organisers have come up with a pair of alien-looking cartoon characters.

Wenlock and Mandeville are described as 'computer generated Smurfs for the iPhone generation'.

They've got one eye and a London "black cab" style yellow light on their heads.

They're set to appear on everything from toys to mugs in the run up to the 2012 Games.
