The BBC executive who decided that Trevor Nelson should be part of the commentary team for this ceremony should be sacked forthwith. Hazel Irvine's bad enough, but Trevor Nelson?!

Mentioning his sisters did it for me.

Oh the faces on the namebearers dresses are people who auditioned for those roles.

Is that Spanish flagbearer on stilts?

Each competing delegation received a copper petal – inscribed with the name of their country & ‘XXX Olympiad London 2012’.
The children parading with the flag bearers are carrying those petals, which will feature in a sequence later.

Ouch! You'd better drink a lot of coffee before living.
It's nearly 3AM here, but I'm at home tomorrow, so no worries for me.

Ukrainians are very enthusiastic.
Удачи!

More than partly true. Huw Edwards has done nothing but mention diamonds, oil and money this evening when the 'rich' nations have appeared. It is remarkable that countries in financial trouble can pull together and send athletes to the Olympic Games. Not only the ones in the Eurozone but elsewhere in the world, there are countries whose wars have stopped with Olympic Truces so athletes can compete.

Hey there FLOTUS
Ralph Lauren uniforms, better than what ours look like.

In Canada on CTV we have Brian Williams, whos's done the Olympics forever for the CBC and now for CTV, he's fine, but his co presenter Lisa Laflamme interrupts him way too much. It's annoying.

I wish Team Canada was better dressed. Wished it was Roots doing the outfits rather than HBC. We looked awesome in Nagano and we haven't looked as good since.

Sorry Team GB has to go parade about with gold armpits.
