The Olympic Torch arrived in London today. Heather Mills McCartney, dressed in a white jogging suit embroidered with Olympic emblems, joined a host of celebrities who ran with the flame during a 30-mile relay through the streets of London, beginning on the center court of Wimbledon and ending at Buckingham Palace where it was used to light a cauldron in The Mall. This was the first time the torch had been in Great Britain since the London Olympics of 1948. This same torch will be used to light the cauldron during the opening ceremonies of the Athens games on August 13.
