Somebody needs to explain to Visa that you become an Olympic sponsor to get people to feel all warm and fuzzy about your company. This <crap> just pissed people off.

This really made me chuckle this morning on the way home from the Closing Ceremony... it may have been the fact that I'd been up for 24 hours but I don't think so! New wayfarer signs at Stratford sta

The wrap idea has not been dropped.

Oh well, missed opportunity I think. They appear somewhat isolated, and stick out like a sore thumb!! We all assumed they would hang from the bridge, in some way or another.

They should have placed these somewhere else.

Yeah, not a fan of that myself. Floating rings on the Thames. Suppose it's better than the syringes and dog poos currently floating there.

Just read this from the Huffington Post

"The Rings on the River are to go into storage until the start of the Olympics, when they will again appear on the Thames."

It appears this sore thumb is going away :)

Thank God. Tower Bridge is an iconic structure absolutely perfect for placing the Olympic rings on.

Oh wait, are they coming back onto the river?

it appears there are no plans to 'hang' the rings on the Bridge. I think, this is as good as it gets!!

But this may change, as the rings would look amazing on Tower Bridge.

Yeah, the rings would look better (and be more iconic) placed on Tower Bridge.

The rings move around the river, that isn't a static position for them in that Tower Bridge photo!

It's a brilliant idea- getting as many landmarks along the London riverside into a photo with the rings before they are moved into the Park.

Unfortunately the tide meant they couldn't go further than London Bridge but will be back at some point to promote Festival events.
