Czech team bring out the wellies
Summer finally appeared in London this week but despite the warm weather one Olympic team appeared prepared for a traditional British downpour - sporting bright blue wellies and brollies.
But there was no need for the Czech Republic's caution because, despite a short shower before the opening ceremony started, the rain stayed away from east London during the athletes' parade.
The Czech team, led by badminton player Petr Koukal, sparked a raft of "Czech out those wellies" jokes on Twitter.
The bright boots caught the attention of Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, who tweeted: "The Czechs expecting a downfall??! #wellies enjoying the Olympic opening ceremony."
