On August 5th, the Olympic Stadium erupted into a fury after Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah from Great Britain each won gold medals in a 45-minute span. Ennis won in the heptathlon, Rutherford was victorious in the long jump and Farah scored in the 10,000 meters run.
Banding together, the fans began to sing "All You Need Is Love," the entire crowd in the 80,000-seat stadium joining in the rendition of the Beatles classic. Paul McCartney was even on hand to celebrate, the Associated Press reports, waving a Union Jack flag.
The 2012 London Olympics conclude on August 12th.
