THE LONDON EYE will be lit up according to the mood of British public on social media sites during the Olympic Games.
The reaction to each day of the Games on Twitter will dictate the look of the iconic London landmark, with a 30-minute light show to take place at 9pm local time each day.
If Britain is positive the Eye will glow yellow, if it’s neutral it will go green, and if the feeling towards the Games is negative it will turn purple. Former British decathlete and two-times Olympic champion Daley Thompson expects plenty of yellow nights.
“At the moment about 62 or 63 percent of the people in Britain are really positive about it (the Olympics) and I suspect as we get closer to the Games and we start winning a few things, that percentage is going to go right up,” Thompson said.
When a British athlete wins a medal the London Eye will light up in the colours of the Union Flag.
