The day after a rollicking closing ceremony at Olympic stadium, the surrounding park appeared mostly empty in the morning, with just a handful of athletes going for a run, and the cleanup beginning slowly. Some of the venues will be transformed for use during the upcoming Paralympics, but 17 arenas across the country will be dismantled.

Heathrow airport was busy as well, where a terminal specially decorated as an English country park was geared up to handle thousands of athletes and their support teams leaving London.
