A ticket for Friday’s grand opening ceremony cost one thousand six hundred pounds about four hundred and sixteen naira (N416,00).
Even at that, the 80,000 sitting capacity stadium was filled to the brim by fans and all who thronged to witness the historic event that ended in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The Queen made an unprecedented entry like a movie actress joining James Bond in the spectacular opening ceremony.
In a scene filmed in advance and screened for the first time, Bond actor Daniel Craig arrived at the Buckingham Palace in a dinner jacket, striding past the corgis towards the royal study in which the Queen said. “Good evening Mr Bond,” before they left together for the Olympic Stadium in a helicopter. The Queen followed by Bond were parachuted from a helicopter into the arena.
