Re: Jimmy Page to perform at closing ceremony of Beijing Olympics

Olympics bow out with 6.8m viewers for closing ceremony

"LONDON - The Olympic closing ceremony, which included David Beckham
riding a bus as part of the symbolic handover to London, was watched
by 6.8m people in the UK on Sunday afternoon.

The event concluded what Nielsen calculated was the most watched Games
in history, which reached 4.4bn people or two-thirds of the world's

The 2004 Athens Olympics was watched by 3.9bn and the 2000 Sydney
Olympics by 3.6bn."
