Roads closed, diversions and congestion but for once we British didn’t seem to moan after Lizzie Armitstead won our first medal of London 2012 in the Olympic women’s cycling road race.

Lizzie Armitstead said: ‘Thank you, Surrey: The leafy villages of Surrey, south west of London, provided a glorious back drop’.
