After the star-studded Closing Ceremony brought an end to the London Olympics yesterday (August 12), the BBC has released a report celebrating what it claims was the "first truly digital Games".
Across BBC One, BBC Three and BBC HD, along with the 24 live video streams made available via the Red Button, the BBC's Olympics coverage on television reached 51.9 million viewers in the UK - the largest combined audience for a major event for at least 10 years.
The Opening and Closing ceremonies proved hugely popular, attracting 27m and 26m peak audiences respectively, while Usain Bolt's victory in the 100 meters final was seen by more than 20m viewers.
But it is online where the BBC has really seen the records tumble, as a daily average of 9.5m global browsers to BBC Sport Online and 7.1m UK browsers smashed previous daily records of 7.4m global and 5.7m UK.
In total, BBC Sport online racked up 55m global browsers and 37m UK browsers across the two weeks of the Games
There were 106 million requests for BBC Olympic video content across all online platforms, double the previous highs of 32m for the Beijing Games and 38m for the 2010 World Cup.
Such was the popularity of the online coverage that over a single 24-hour period on the busiest Olympic days, total traffic to BBC.co.uk exceeded that for the entire BBC online coverage of matches at the World Cup in 2010.
The BBC delivered 2.8 petabytes of data on its busiest day, while the peak traffic came when Bradley Wiggins won gold in the cycling Time Trial, at over 700 gigabits per second.
According to the BBC, London 2012 was also the first "truly mobile Games" as 9.2m total UK browsers came from mobile devices, and demand from phones made up 34% of all daily browsers for BBC Olympic coverage. Over 2.3 million browsers came on tablet, and there were 12m requests for mobile video throughout the Games
Some 23.7m viewers accessed the BBC's 24 standard and high definition videos streams on various television platforms for at least 15 minutes throughout the Games, and every single stream of an Olympic event attracted at least 100,000 viewers.
Using its linear TV channels and live streams, the BBC delivered more than 2,500 hours of coverage of every athlete, venue and event at the London 2012 Games.
Of the 106m online video requests, 62 million were for live streams, 8m for on-demand streams and 35m for video clips.
The top ten most requested BBC Olympic events via video stream runs as follows:
1. Tennis Singles Finals - Serena Williams and Andy Murray's Gold Medal Wins - August 5 - 820,000

Danny Boyle's Opening Ceremony has continued to be one of the most popular programmes on BBC Online, with 3.9m requests to view it on either BBC iPlayer or the BBC Sport website to date.
Popular video clips included German diver Steven Feck's 'zero point' dive, with over 830,000 requests, while Cuban pole vaulter McKayla Maroney's pole snapping mid-vault was watched 420,000 times, and Usain Bolt storming to victory in the 100m final had over 429,000 requests.
The BBC's dedicated Olympics app was downloaded 1.9 million times for Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones. Mobile demand for the BBC's Olympic coverage increased to 40% of all browsers at the weekends, up from 30% during the week.
Phil Fearnley, the general manager - news and knowledge at BBC Future Media, said that the BBC has delivered on its promise to present a 'truly digital Games'.
"Our aspiration was that just as the Coronation did for TV in 1953, the Olympics would do for digital in 2012," he said.
"The demand and astonishing feedback we've seen from audiences accessing our Olympics content online, whenever they want, on the devices they choose, has exceeded our expectations and helped fulfil this aspiration.
"We promised audiences would never miss a moment of the Games. We delivered on our promise and will build on this to leave a lasting digital legacy for audiences in years to come."
BBC Sport head of interactive Ben Gallop added: "Our home Olympics was a special time for the whole UK and it's been really pleasing for BBC Sport to have given our audience the chance to enjoy all that amazing action
"There have been some great stories of people following Team GB's rowing success at the shopping centre or watching Usain Bolt when they're on the beach. We like to think it was the ultimate Olympic choice: on-demand and on-the-move."
