The giant TV, which will be showing the Games from 10am to 10pm today and tomorrow, proved a hit with passing members of the public.

Jeff Carlson, 43, of Ashbrooke, said: “I had a sit down in one of the deckchairs for five minutes and watched a bit of tennis.

“It’s a great idea. I just hope the weather holds out.”

This weekend’s schedule includes fencing, volleyball and athletics today, along with diving tomorrow.

The screen will also show the much anticipated 100m final on Sunday evening,
