Plane takes off past Olympics sign

Team GB have been Tweeting from their flight home from Rio and here's some of their best work


Team GB arrive back in London this morning with medals round their necks and a country proudly waiting to congratulate them.

The British Airways plane which is taking most of them home from Rio de Janeiro is packed with 77 bottles of champagne and has been renamed “victoRIOus”.

The Olympic high-fliers have posted some brilliant stuff on social media too…

Including gold medal rowers Scott Durant and William Satch.

Record-breaking gold medallist swimmer Adam Peaty, and Satch. Again.

Gold medallist hockey player Susannah Townsend and squad.

Champion cyclist Callum Skinner found a good spot to rest his medals.

Three-time Olympic champion rower Pete Reed and canoe slalom winner Joe Clarke showed they’re keeping their valuables all together.

While Olympic record-breaking cyclist Philip Hindes wanted the public to know these valuables were legit.

Olympic rowing champion Helen Glover was filled with pride…

Many were impressed with their travel method.

Far too many hopped in the cockpit…

Silver medal trampolinist Bryony Page and judo bronze winner Sally Conway shared some bubbles.

Champion diver Chris Mears was just looking for some shut-eye, however…

Whether he can get any with the celebrations on board is anyone’s guess.
