Boris rocks the Opera House.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson had the Royal Opera House in raptures when he recited a poem in English and ancient Greek to welcome the Olympic movement to London.

Boris received loud applause, whistles and cheers after he recited the ancient greek toned poem which apparently contained puns on athletes names.

The poem, or ode, was created especially for the occasion by Oxford academic, Dr Armand D'Angour, after Boris said it'd be a good idea.
