Interesting reaction in France to the success of both Olympic Games. Firstly amazement that the British could put on such a fantastic show - they loved the idea of the Queeen jumping out of a helicopter. Can't see Hollande or Sarkozy doing that! And then they were very impressed by the Para-Olympics. It made them realise that they are behind in ther attitudes to handicap. English visitors to France found themselves being congratulated on the success by complete strangers.
