Abstract

'As we predicted you just did the greatest Games ever.... I really want to congratulate Mayor Boris Johnson for leading the city of London into these great Games.... These are Games of legacy, I've been to London many times and it's amazing what you did in the area of the Olympic park.... The logistics of the operation, the mobility of the people in London is really something.... We came here for a little advice from Mayor Boris and we're going to use the lessons we learned here in London for Rio's Games.... The city of Rio, it's not as rich as yours, but we're in good shape now.'.
