Londoner To Carry Olympic Flame In Greece

A youngster who was part of the bid for London to host the Olympics is going to get to carry the Olympic flame in Greece.

Alex Loukos was one of 30 children from east London who travelled out to Singapore back in 2005 as part of the closing presentations.

He'll be the second person to carry the flame in the Greek torch relay after it's lit in Ancient Olympia on May 10th.

The flame arrives in the UK on May 18th for a 70 day relay around Britain.
