Tennis star Andy Murray won a gold and a silver medal for Great Britain, but had his medals snatched away - by his two pups Maggie May and Rusty.
The two dogs proudly wearing the medals have appeared in a photograph on the Twitter account of Maggie May, which has over 11,000 followers.
The account for the dog was set up last year by Murray’s longtime girlfriend Kim Sears and the caption below the photograph reads “Here we go folks... Just checking to make sure Rusty definitely has the silver, obviously”.
Sears was also the cynosure of all eyes at the All England Club when Murray after racing to a stunning Olympics victory against his Wimbledon nemesis Roger Federer headed straight for Sears and pulled her into a tight hug.
They shared a kiss and whispered into each other's ears before Murray made his way through the rest of his ecstatic family and support group.
After his gold in the singles, Murray then earned a silver with fellow Brit Laura Robson in the mixed doubles.
Games Village to be home for the poor
The sprawling London Games village located in the Olympic Park, which now houses around 17,000 athletes and officials, post the Olympics will be converted into 2,818 new homes, half of which will be affordable houses for the economically weak and the rest will be for profit.
The new community that will be developed from the village will be known as East Village.
The community that develops in the area after the Games will be supported by new parklands, open spaces, new transport links and community facilities.
These will include Chobham Academy - a new education campus with 1,800 places for students aged 3-19 - and a new health centre, which will provide medical facilities to existing local communities and the residents of the Village.
Construction of the Village began in May 2008 and was completed mid 2012 at a cost of $1.5 billion or approximately 98 million pounds.
There are 2,818 apartments altogether, along with shops, restaurants, medical, media and leisure facilities, and large areas of open spaces. A crew of 40 had worked non-stop to assemble 16,000 beds, 9,000 wardrobes and 11,000 sofas to furnish the Village.
Like life in a dormitory, hungry Olympic competitors looking for a bite have to head to the 24-hour dining hall, which is a temporary structure that can dish out 5,000 meals at a time.
While the apartments are pretty basic, the Olympic Village does have some fun extras for all athletes to use and enjoy like state-of-the-art gym, indoor lounge area with pool tables and video games, computer lab, beauty salon, outdoor lounge areas, a store to buy London Olympics gear and other amenities.
Olympic of expulsions
While many athletes made it to the history books breaking and creating records while competing for the pride of their nations, some others let their countries down by getting expelled from the Olympics for reasons like doping and racial abuse.
The expulsions started even before the Games began when Albanian weightlifter Hysen Pulaku was thrown out of the Games after failing a drugs test July 23.
Next on the list was Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou who was expelled July 25 for making racially offending tweets.
Greece was once again in the news the following day when high jumper Dimitrios Chondrokoukis had to withdraw himself out of Games following a positive drug test.
On July 25, Uzbekistan gymnast Luiza Galiulina was expelled for doping after testing positive for a banned diuretic.
St.Kitts and Nevis sprinter Tameka Williams was sent home packing on the second day after the Games began when she admitted to taking a banned substance.
Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella was expelled July 30 after he posted a racially offensive tweet about South Korean players.
Three-time world champion hammer thrower from Belarus Ivan Tsikhan and Moroccan 1,500 metres runner Amine Laalou were also ruled out for anti-doping rule violations.
Colombian 400 metres runner Diego Palomeque Echevarria and Brazilian female rower Kissya Cataldo da Costa also were ejected for testing positive.
While the players continued to be in news for expulsions, they got an unlikely company in form of a match official when boxing referee from Turkmenistan Ishanguly Meretnyyazov was expelled for his handling of a bout, in which the result was overturned on appeal.
Azerbaijani international technical official Aghajan Abiyev and referee Frank Scharmach of Germany were the other officials to be suspended from the Games.
However, the disqualifications that hogged the limelight the most were those of eight female badminton doubles players from South Korea, China and Indonesia after they tried to lose matches to receive a more favorable place in the tournament.
