Boris Johnson and David Cameron, who were there to champion the day, couldn’t resist joining in a few matches! Check out this video I found on Sky News of them taking part in a game of wheelchair tennis.

It may seem ages away, two years in fact, but London mayor Boris Johnson did all he could yesterday to publicise the impending 2012 Paralympic Games by playing Boccia with Paralympian Ade Adepitan in Trafalgar Square.
They were also joined by 21-year-old David Smith, a Boccia gold medalist, and some children hoping to get into the game. Cheeky Boris had to be reprimanded at one point by Ade for edging forward and not sitting back in his chair! Take a look at the VIDEO on the BBC website.
