The Olympic Games have closed in spectacular fashion.
The ceremony started with famous sights of Britain's capital city including the London Eye and Big Ben, along with a Winston Churchill speech.
Madness, Blur, The Pet Shop Boys and One Direction are among the big names that played at the colourful closing ceremony.
The Spice Girls have given their fans what they want, what they really really want.
Posh, Baby, Scary, Ginger and Sporty Spice performed a mash up of their greatest hits.
Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain has definitely made its mark with the games:
"Take all of this, the attitude, the confidence and you see what Britain is today, sure of who we are, proud of who we are. In short - not a country who's time has been, but who's time has come."
Two weeks of competition has wrapped up - in that time, we've seen 44 world records and 117 Olympic records broken.
London Olympics boss, Lord Sebastian Coe has thanked those who made the games happen:
"To the volunteers who have made these games, everywhere I go, they are the people that are being spoken about and of course the British people who in their millions, have helped us get to where we are."
Celebrations ended with the Olympic flag being passed onto the organisers of the next games in Rio de Janeiro, and a rousing performance from The Who.
And it's the perfect end to the perfect games for Mahe Drysdale.
The single sculls gold medallist carried the New Zealand flag into Olympic park for the closing ceremony.
He says he's had a wonderful time in London.
