In pictures: Team GB heroes return to the capital

19 October 2016 / 11:12
It may have rained on the parade in Manchester, but the sun came out to play on Tuesday as London welcomed our Team GB Heroes to Trafalgar Square.

Thousands of people watched on under the gaze of Admiral Nelson as the party got underway on stage, waving Union Jacks and foam fingers in support of their sporting heroes.

And we've selected some of our favourite photos of the day for you to check out!

A regal entrance

The Massed Bands of the Grenadier and Coldstream Guards treated the crowd to a rendition of Barry Manilow’s Copacabana to get the party started in the capital.



Here come the athletes...

Our hockey golden girls got arguably the biggest cheer of the day as they made their way on stage, crutches and all for Susannah Townsend!


Double Olympic champion Nicola Adams was a big hit with the thousands of people cheering in Trafalgar Square


And of course, no parade would be complete without Max Whitlock showing off his skills!


But first, let me take a selfie...

Those hockey girls sure do love a photo!

And others were getting in on the selfie action too, to ensure the memories of the Heroes Return live on for years to come!

To the Palace!

But the crowning moment of the day for our athletes was their visit to Buckingham Palace following the parade, where they met the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, as well as the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Here's Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh meeting the Duchess of Cambridge, alongside Justin Rose and Nick Skelton.

And here's our boxing queen Nicola Adams meeting the actual Queen!
