A CO-ORDINATED sing-along will take place across the country when London officially becomes an Olympic city.

Thousands of people are expected at the O2 on the Greenwich Peninsula on Sunday, August 24, between 1 and 4pm to mark Greenwich becoming a host borough for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games.

This will coincide with the handover of the Olympic flag from the Mayor of Beijing to London Mayor Boris Johnson, in a ceremony in China, which will be shown on a giant screen.

The mass sing-along and sports day will feature a jazz and samba band accompanied by carnival dancers, roaming artists, giant puppets and Chinese acrobats.

There will be a football shooting competition run by Charlton Athletic football club, a gymnastics display and demonstrations by local sports clubs of Judo, Tae Kwon Do and fencing.

Greenwich's Host Borough Olympic flag will also be revealed.
