Boris Johnson says the UK will have a 'summer like no other' - ahead of the official handover of the Olympic Flame.

The Mayor is heading to Greece to join the likes of London 2012 chairman Lord Coe, David Beckham and Princess Anne at a ceremony in Athens tomorrow.

David Beckham will be joined by five young people, from schools and colleges which are part of London 2012's Get Set education network.

They have been invited by London 2012 and the British Council as a reward for their commitment to sport and for promoting the Olympic values of friendship, excellence and respect within their school or college.

The team of delegates will bring the flame back to the UK for the start of the torch relay on Friday.
