Commuters in London were pleasantly surprised this morning. Many were expecting the mother of all delays and chaos in a crush with tourists heading to the various Olympic venues around the city, but they were greeted with a quieter than usual picture. In light of recent problems on the London Underground, today - being the first back to work day during the Games – was a big test of the capital's notoriously busy transport system.
Dominic said: "I expected to have a bit of trouble, so I've left home a lot earlier than normal but I'm here 45 minutes door to door all the way from Chelmsford so really really good actually, surprised. (Laughs) Like I say I expected an hour and a half journey in this morning but absolutely no problems at all." John said: "Yeah, I'm only here from Mile End so it's a bit crowded, didn't get a seat but it's fine, not too bad."
This morning lots of excited fans were streaming into the Olympic Park to catch some of the Men's Hockey action. Alex from Belgium: "So it's my first Olympics and it's a fairly important event 'cause I'm a big hockey player, so I really wanted these tickets and I got lucky but unfortunately I can't see Belgium as they're playing tonight but I'm seeing New Zealand and Australia, so I'll support these teams."
Karen said "It's amazing, honestly to be here is just, it's unbelievable. Kirsty said: All the way from South Africa so we've come a long way to experience it and I think we're extremely excited."
China and the US are the top two in the medal table right now and with Team GB getting a silver and bronze already, British fans are gearing themselves up for the first Gold which will hopefully be anytime soon.
