Thousands of Olympic athletes have started streaming into Heathrow Airport. Some were even waved off by special volunteers wearing bearskin hats.
Heathrow is bracing for one of its busiest days ever with some 116,000 people expected to leave Britain on Monday.
A special terminal with 31 check-in desks has been set up to deal with departing athletes and support staff. After three days, it will go back to its previous life: a parking lot for airport staff.
