Volunteers get biggest cheer of the night

@gesmiddleeast commented: "A Fantastic Event! Well Done London! Well Done GB! And a very big well done to all organisors, Staff, volunteers" while @whynotkeegan spoke for many when he wrote: "I on behalf of the world would like to thank all of the volunteers, athletes, coaches and event organisers, truly amazing what they've done",

Similar sentiments were echoed by @xester_biebs, who tweeted: "London N/AOlympics is OVER :( All thanks to the organisers,volunteers & most of all the athletes for putting on a brillant show for us ;)" and @gary ley added: "Thank you to the tens of thousands of volunteerswho gave their time, boundless enthusiasm and good will".

Meanwhile, @goodoldshep summed up the feeling of those in the stadium when he posted: "The stadium never wanted to stop cheering after Coe thanked you volunteers" and @crashmatt showed his appreciation: "All the volunteers on the big screen, ace!"
