Since the Youth Olympic flame was lit last month in Athens, Greece, the mascot NANJINGLELE has been globetrotting around the world with the Virtual Torch Relay.

He made a stop last week in London, UK, for a quick sightseeing tour with friendly Team GB mascot Pride the Lion.

Their first stop was the Olympic Stadium, followed by many other London 2012 venues, such as the Horse Guards Parade that hosted the Beach Volleyball event , the velodrome and the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Olympic Park.

The mascots also had a lot of fun taking pictures with iconic British landmarks and sights like Big Ben, the famous red telephone boxes, black cabs and a trip on the London Underground!

They ended the day with a cup of English tea, and Pride taught NANJINGLELE how to make a proper “cuppa”.
