The Olympic Banana

A guy named Omar runs with The Olympic Banana in front of the people waiting for the London 2012 Olympic torch’s arrival in Guildford, England.

'At about 6 o’clock last Friday, the streets outside our office in Guildford started filling up with crowds of people, as excitement grew for the arrival of the Olympic Torch. A few of us gathered around the windows because we had a prime view over the route, directly on the road below. At some point, Omar made his exit from the building, and just moments before the actual Olympic torch was due to come down the road with the procession to ignite the crowds - He burst from the crowd to run down the road holding the “Olympic Banana”.'
