Good evening and welcome back to Manchester, where we have enjoyed a

:00:51.:00:56.

fantastic celebration of what was a wonderful summer of sport for

:00:57.:01:02.

Paralympic GB and Team GB, and the rain here in Manchester certainly

:01:03.:01:05.

didn't dampen the spirits. # Breeze driftin' on by,

:01:06.:01:08.

you know how I feel Andy Murray is a double

:01:09.:01:28.

Olympic gold medallist! Sarah Storey is Great Britain's most

:01:29.:01:55.

successful Paralympian! Adam Peaty takes Olympic

:01:56.:01:59.

gold for Great Britain! That is a third gold

:02:00.:02:02.

medal for Bethany Firth! Glover and Stanning defend

:02:03.:02:06.

their Olympic title. # Blossom on the tree,

:02:07.:02:12.

you know how I feel # It's a new dawn, it's a new day,

:02:13.:02:24.

it's a new life for me, yeah, COMMENTATOR: A double gold

:02:25.:02:34.

medallist in the 100 metres. Alistair Brownlee, the Olympic

:02:35.:02:40.

trialthon champion! Kadeena Cox, gold in the Velodrome

:02:41.:02:45.

and gold now on the track. # Scent of the pine,

:02:46.:02:48.

you know how I feel # Oh, freedom is mine,

:02:49.:03:03.

and I know how I feel # Yes, it's a new dawn, it's

:03:04.:03:10.

a new day, it's a new life for me COMMENTATOR: Laura Trott

:03:11.:03:27.

is Britain's most successful female Max Whitlock - double

:03:28.:03:34.

Olympic champion. Jason Kenny's got it,

:03:35.:03:39.

a sixth gold medal! Mo Farah is going to

:03:40.:03:44.

get the double double. It is a mixture of sunshine and

:03:45.:03:59.

showers, almost exactly one month since the closing ceremony of the

:04:00.:04:04.

Paralympics so it is a chance today to relive events in Rio and refresh

:04:05.:04:08.

memories, which is worth doing bearing in mind what was achieved.

:04:09.:04:12.

There will be youngsters watching who revel in the success and take it

:04:13.:04:17.

for granted that in Olympic terms winning medals is normal. Go back 20

:04:18.:04:23.

years to Atlanta, there was one gold medal at the Olympics. Steve

:04:24.:04:29.

Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent. I can remember being part of a team that

:04:30.:04:37.

came back, and our parade was a convertible car. Float number one

:04:38.:04:41.

has just started moving. Libby, how does that memory fit in your own

:04:42.:04:47.

mind? It feels like such a long time ago, so much has happened since

:04:48.:04:53.

then. Been on holiday, been visiting family and friends so it feels like

:04:54.:04:58.

a long time ago already. Any downside to wearing your two medals?

:04:59.:05:04.

They keep bashing together, having two they get scratched really

:05:05.:05:11.

easily. Never mind! Looking down on the city of Manchester and a

:05:12.:05:15.

reminder of what was achieved. The Olympic Games, Great Britain and

:05:16.:05:19.

Northern Ireland claimed 67 medals altogether, and ahead of China in

:05:20.:05:25.

the table which is always a useful marker, behind only the United

:05:26.:05:31.

States. Two more medals overall than managed at London 2012. Paralympics,

:05:32.:05:39.

147 medals in total, 27 more than in London.

:05:40.:05:43.

It is an absolute treat, Manchester looking resplendent. Jazz, I will

:05:44.:05:47.

come to you first because it must seem like ages ago when you won your

:05:48.:05:52.

first silver medals but here you are taking in the applause you deserve.

:05:53.:05:58.

What is it like? We have had a bit of rain but that has not dampened

:05:59.:06:02.

it. We thank the public for the support because it has been

:06:03.:06:07.

incredible. Write until we landed we had incredible support from everyone

:06:08.:06:12.

and it is amazing to be here today and thank everyone. Jack, I'm sure

:06:13.:06:17.

you want to say the same message. Rio was some time ago and now you

:06:18.:06:21.

finally get to meet the public that gave so much support. Yes, it is

:06:22.:06:27.

nice to do it with the Olympians and Paralympians together as well. For

:06:28.:06:31.

me personally I had no idea what the sport was like at home. To come back

:06:32.:06:37.

and see thousands of people in the streets of Manchester, out in the

:06:38.:06:41.

rain as well earlier. They have stuck through it, it is nice to be

:06:42.:06:46.

here and to be able to say thank you to everybody because they are

:06:47.:06:52.

massive part of it as well. Becky James, world champion, and a double

:06:53.:06:58.

Olympic medallist as well. Just talk about your journey you had for the

:06:59.:07:02.

three years building up the Rio 2016 because a lot of people won't

:07:03.:07:06.

remember what you went through to be here on this float, enjoying the

:07:07.:07:10.

Manchester crowd you know so well and rejoicing what was a great

:07:11.:07:14.

summer. It was a really tough journey. The two years coming into

:07:15.:07:20.

the Olympics was really hard, especially from 2014 I was injured.

:07:21.:07:27.

I had a long period off. I had a really good year out from Rio, and

:07:28.:07:33.

to be standing here with two medals aren't to be celebrating with

:07:34.:07:39.

everybody is incredible. Anne Dickins, four years ago what were

:07:40.:07:43.

you doing? Standing on the side of a road just like this, waving at the

:07:44.:07:48.

athletes I had been looking after at 2012 and I was a games maker at that

:07:49.:07:53.

very parade so it seems funny to be on a float waving back at the

:07:54.:08:00.

people. And was competing at the Games a dream or at Fort or none of

:08:01.:08:06.

that? I always said it would be nice to get the Rio, but to get the -- to

:08:07.:08:15.

the final and to win a medal was more of a dream than I could ever

:08:16.:08:19.

have hard. It is difficult to know where to look and who to mention,

:08:20.:08:23.

there's so many to talk about, and big crowds. We are expecting upwards

:08:24.:08:30.

of 100,000 in Albert Square, where the parade will end with an onstage

:08:31.:08:35.

performance and greeting of the athletes.

:08:36.:08:40.

It has been a normal year, hasn't it, Joe, and here you are in

:08:41.:08:51.

Manchester, just normal, isn't it? Yes, just normal! It is fantastic to

:08:52.:08:57.

see everybody supporting Team GB and the Paralympians, and the rain has

:08:58.:09:03.

just about stopped. Could you have imagined all those months ago this

:09:04.:09:06.

is how you would be celebrating? This is a dream, to be standing here

:09:07.:09:13.

with this around my neck is a dream achieved. We are here living it and

:09:14.:09:21.

it is amazing. Float number 12 has Olympic rugby, Olympic sailing,

:09:22.:09:28.

shooting, tennis, triathlon, and Matthew Pinsent is on float number

:09:29.:09:31.

12. Lutalo Muhammad, I'm afraid the only

:09:32.:09:37.

question anyone will ask you for years is why didn't you run away?

:09:38.:09:44.

There's a lot of cold of course! Losing by 0.1 with one seconds ago

:09:45.:09:50.

was devastating but being here I cannot help but smile, I am in great

:09:51.:09:54.

spirits and I have another opportunity in four years which I

:09:55.:09:58.

will take with both hands. Everybody lived with you through those tearful

:09:59.:10:02.

moments, that must have been horrendous at the time. It was

:10:03.:10:06.

absolutely devastating, probably one of the lowest points of my life but

:10:07.:10:11.

the sun did rise the next morning and I've got another opportunity in

:10:12.:10:16.

four years. I'm still very blessed to be an Olympic silver medallist as

:10:17.:10:21.

sad as it was at the time so it is all smiles. Hannah Russell, and

:10:22.:10:31.

Bethany Firth who has come complete with poncho. Very cleverly done,

:10:32.:10:37.

Bethany. You know all about wet weather. This is just a little bit

:10:38.:10:43.

of something. Yes, nothing will stop us smiling. Exactly, Great Britain's

:10:44.:10:52.

most successful Paralympian 2016, that is huge. We can see all four of

:10:53.:10:57.

your medals, what did that feel like? It just meant that all of

:10:58.:11:04.

those hours of training were worth it and the whole team did incredible

:11:05.:11:09.

as well so it was great to be out there. Your housemates in Rio as

:11:10.:11:15.

well, Hannah Russell, who didn't do too badly either, three medals in

:11:16.:11:20.

total, two of them gold. How nice is it to celebrate with the British

:11:21.:11:26.

public? It is fantastic, this time around to have a parade in

:11:27.:11:30.

Manchester and London is incredible. Everyone can get together and

:11:31.:11:33.

celebrate the success Britain has had. It might be wet but look at the

:11:34.:11:40.

smiles on these girls' faces. The time has come, this is what we

:11:41.:11:46.

are all here for so first onto the Albert Square stage, ladies and

:11:47.:11:50.

gentlemen, the British Paralympic athletes!

:11:51.:11:57.

# Gold! Always believe in your soul # You've got the power to know your

:11:58.:12:02.

indestructible # Always believe

:12:03.:12:15.

# Hannah, I'm going to jump in here, you can share my umbrella.

:12:16.:12:26.

The unstoppable Hannah Cockroft. Two gold medals in London, two in Rio,

:12:27.:12:30.

you have done some phenomenal things. How are you, looking back on

:12:31.:12:38.

it? It means nothing until you come somewhere like this and see the

:12:39.:12:41.

amount of people behind it. Thank you for coming out into this

:12:42.:12:47.

terrible weather and supporting us. Another man who knows the taste of

:12:48.:12:51.

victory, Richard Whitehead. There wasn't much question about you

:12:52.:12:56.

bringing home the 200 metres gold but the 100 metres gold, if that

:12:57.:13:00.

race had been 101 metres long I reckon you would have added. If it

:13:01.:13:06.

was 101 metres maybe I would be retired now and not thinking about

:13:07.:13:11.

moving on to Tokyo so today is a great celebration about what we did

:13:12.:13:15.

in Rio, but without the support here in Manchester and the rest of Great

:13:16.:13:20.

Britain, it is all about you guys really. So thank you for the

:13:21.:13:26.

support. You are awesome. Without the volunteers, the national lottery

:13:27.:13:32.

players, everyone in gold hats, we love you!

:13:33.:13:42.

# I've got to kiss myself I'm so pretty...

:13:43.:13:51.

#. Jessica, come over here. Jessica

:13:52.:13:59.

Ennis-Hill, Manchester! The rain stopped appropriately. I know, I'm

:14:00.:14:07.

not looking very glamorous. What was the parade like? Incredible, we

:14:08.:14:11.

cannot thank you enough for the support you have given all these

:14:12.:14:15.

years, and for you to turn out and cheer and wave your flags is

:14:16.:14:20.

incredible, thank you. We know you have announced your retirement

:14:21.:14:30.

now... I tell you what, we might have a future in panto if this

:14:31.:14:34.

continues. How long did you think about it?

:14:35.:14:39.

It was a tough decision, I knew in my heart it was the right decision

:14:40.:14:44.

but it was still difficult to make it public and say it. The messages

:14:45.:14:48.

and support I've had over the years has been incredible. I can't thank

:14:49.:14:52.

you all enough, it's been very special. Ladies and gentlemen, the

:14:53.:14:57.

British athletes, Jessica Ennis-Hill.

:14:58.:15:02.

What you make of a crowd like this? Think of the weather and how long

:15:03.:15:05.

they have stood here, what does it mean to you to get this reaction? It

:15:06.:15:09.

means everything to me, I would like to thank everybody for coming out

:15:10.:15:13.

today, especially in the brain. Manchester, I love you! I think it's

:15:14.:15:18.

fair to say Manchester loves you. -- especially in the rain. Enjoy the

:15:19.:15:25.

rest of it. Can I do something cheeky? You always do. I'm going to

:15:26.:15:33.

go down and do some cheeky selfies! That, ladies and gentlemen, is the

:15:34.:15:37.

last we will see of Nicola Adams for the next two and a half hours. Let's

:15:38.:15:42.

not forget every single member of the Team GB track cycling squad came

:15:43.:15:47.

back with a medal from Rio. So did that help you all or did it kind of

:15:48.:15:53.

put added pressure on as the Exxon went on Exxon went on the next one

:15:54.:15:57.

went? Went? I think it really helped. Especially day one, Callum

:15:58.:16:06.

and Phil won. They won and broke the Olympic record on day one of the

:16:07.:16:10.

competition. For me, that gave me so much confidence in our team, the

:16:11.:16:14.

preparation, the equipment, everything that we'd done together.

:16:15.:16:18.

That gave me so much confidence they had won. Day one and Phil was

:16:19.:16:22.

running around with his medal and we were like, we want one as well. The

:16:23.:16:26.

day we braced I remember looking up and seeing all the men's team

:16:27.:16:31.

pursuit squad there watching us. I said, wow, they came to cheer us on.

:16:32.:16:35.

I was so glad they done that and the next day I found out they'd been

:16:36.:16:40.

told to be there for a BBC interview so it probably wasn't of their own

:16:41.:16:43.

accord. But it was nice to see them all out there. Thank you so much for

:16:44.:16:47.

talking to us, and all the team who have come out, Team GB cycling.

:16:48.:16:54.

Dame Sarah Storey, you are the most successful female Paralympian GB has

:16:55.:16:57.

ever produced. What does that mean to you?

:16:58.:17:03.

It's huge. Tanni Grey Thompson is an incredible athlete, I voice looked

:17:04.:17:06.

up to her. I don't think it will ever think in I had won more gold

:17:07.:17:11.

medals than she has. She has been an incredible mentor to me throughout

:17:12.:17:14.

my career and will continue to be so, she is so incredible. You've

:17:15.:17:20.

done that crossed two sports but you've done two in the same games,

:17:21.:17:24.

breaking a record that stood for 28 years for Great Britain. 32! 32? Who

:17:25.:17:33.

wrote these cards? Yeah, it was fun. I went out there to achieve what I

:17:34.:17:37.

did. We weren't sure if it was going to go as well as it did but I went

:17:38.:17:41.

out there and performed the best I could and I'm happy with what I did.

:17:42.:17:46.

Max Whitlock, take a bow. What you did in Rio was phenomenal. Talk us

:17:47.:17:53.

through that day. It was a crazy day. To do it in the

:17:54.:17:58.

space of an hour and a half was unbelievable. The support we've had

:17:59.:18:02.

this whole journey and for you guys to be here today, even in this

:18:03.:18:06.

weather is just incredible. We didn't realise how much support we

:18:07.:18:10.

had until we stepped off that plane, so thank you. In terms of support...

:18:11.:18:15.

CHEERING 10 million people were watching you.

:18:16.:18:19.

Did you kind of comeback, were you getting stopped in the street

:18:20.:18:22.

everywhere? The recognition has gone up a bit, but for the individuals,

:18:23.:18:28.

for the sports profile, it's been incredible. The amount of gymnasts

:18:29.:18:33.

I've heard doing gymnastics today is crazy. So hopefully we can keep that

:18:34.:18:38.

continuing, that's been our mission, to inspire generations, inspire

:18:39.:18:41.

people into sport, so we're doing quite well in it. Ladies and

:18:42.:18:45.

gentlemen Lee Pearson was the first man into the stadium because he was

:18:46.:18:49.

the flag bearer for ParalympicsGB. How did that one feel? I got awful

:18:50.:18:55.

friend saying do something funny with the flag over your face. I was

:18:56.:18:59.

like, this is the most important time of my life, I'm going to intend

:19:00.:19:03.

to stay on the scooter and not drop the flag. You manage that and you

:19:04.:19:09.

manage to stay was taken gold and silver. You got an individual silver

:19:10.:19:12.

in 2012 that determine due to come back and get the this year? It did.

:19:13.:19:19.

Just before 2012 this particular horse broke my back in four places,

:19:20.:19:23.

but he did behave himself out in Rio and I love him to bits. The silver

:19:24.:19:28.

medal was so important on the Wednesday, and on the Friday we

:19:29.:19:32.

picked on and did our job and got the gold.

:19:33.:19:35.

Please put your hands together for the Olympic hockey team! CHEERING

:19:36.:19:43.

AND APPLAUSE I knew that was going to get a big

:19:44.:19:49.

round of applause. You could feel every decibel of that

:19:50.:19:56.

cheer. Doing it in style! , and have a chat. Captain Kate

:19:57.:20:04.

Richardson-Walsh. Are you all right? Yes, I'm a little bit like a drowned

:20:05.:20:08.

rat but I'm a Mancunian, so I'm totally fine with it! Back on home

:20:09.:20:13.

turf? Yes, lovely to be home, thanks for having us. I've said it before

:20:14.:20:19.

and lots of people have said it since, 9 million watched on the

:20:20.:20:23.

Friday night. Do you feel that was the defining moment for women's

:20:24.:20:27.

sport, team sport? I think all of the performances from

:20:28.:20:31.

the Paralympics and the Olympians, everyone did an amazing job. For

:20:32.:20:35.

women and young girls were just saying to them, go out and achieve

:20:36.:20:39.

your dreams. You can do if you work hard, if you're dedicated, anything

:20:40.:20:45.

can happen. Helen and Katherine, don't try and

:20:46.:20:49.

hide. Step forward, step forward. Hello

:20:50.:20:54.

ladies. Do you think it's hard for them to appreciate for you guys

:20:55.:20:58.

training is quite lonely? You are up and out early, anti-social hours.

:20:59.:21:02.

With that in mind, how important our days like this?

:21:03.:21:05.

It's amazing because you almost feel quite selfish that your training

:21:06.:21:09.

every single day for a goal that is the biggest thing you can think of,

:21:10.:21:12.

it feels like you're the only one that cares. When you race and you

:21:13.:21:16.

realise you might have inspired some on, you might have made some on's

:21:17.:21:20.

date, you might have made them excited, you might have got them to

:21:21.:21:24.

pick up a new sport you realise, it's not about me, it's about

:21:25.:21:28.

everyone, young and old. You don't have to want to be the next big

:21:29.:21:32.

thing, you don't have to want to be the next Olympian, but what you can

:21:33.:21:35.

gain from sport from health and fitness and making new friends, it's

:21:36.:21:40.

just endless. The fact that we can do our jobs and be so lucky to do

:21:41.:21:44.

what we do for a living, and have a reception like this at the end of

:21:45.:21:48.

the day, I think it blows all of our minds.

:21:49.:21:51.

The strength of British rowing is phenomenal and gets better and

:21:52.:21:56.

better. And also the style and good-looking. Look at them! Didn't

:21:57.:22:02.

get quite a big cheer! That was just friends and family. I mean, it is.

:22:03.:22:07.

The whole team has been so successful crossed all the sports.

:22:08.:22:14.

And in the crowd as well! I think we know there is an expectation to

:22:15.:22:17.

deliver big results now and we'll know that's what we're aiming for

:22:18.:22:21.

and the intensity day to day in training comes through in those big

:22:22.:22:25.

results. Everyone who saw the success in London and enjoyed the

:22:26.:22:27.

big day is out after that knew what it'll be like. Everyone wanted to

:22:28.:22:32.

have a day like this. I love these hats by the way. Do you want one?

:22:33.:22:40.

Yes, I do. Can somebody here...? Health and safety wouldn't have been

:22:41.:22:43.

very happy there, you could have had my eye out. There you go. CHEERING

:22:44.:22:50.

Now I've got you a hat hopefully you won't stump me for this question,

:22:51.:22:57.

what's next? Holiday. Good. Huge congratulations, your third

:22:58.:22:59.

Olympic Games, how did this one compare? It was great, to come from

:23:00.:23:05.

a home games in London, which is outstanding, and come to this one in

:23:06.:23:08.

Rio was incredible. I'm so shocked by all the people who have come out

:23:09.:23:12.

today and supported us. But it's fantastic, so thank you. Ellie

:23:13.:23:17.

Robinson, I'm disappointed you've come down with your hood down after

:23:18.:23:22.

that entrance in Rio. What was it like coming out that incredible Rio

:23:23.:23:26.

crowd? The crowd in Rio were amazing, they knew how to get

:23:27.:23:30.

everyone going. When you walked out for your race, it was an amazing

:23:31.:23:33.

atmosphere to walk out and it got you going for your race. In a word,

:23:34.:23:38.

you two are so smiley and new support each other, but what about

:23:39.:23:43.

in the pool? Does that get wiped off and there's a more serious rivalry?

:23:44.:23:47.

Yes, I'm very competitive. That was a quick answer! LE beat me in some

:23:48.:23:53.

of the races are not happy about that. Hopefully that will change in

:23:54.:23:58.

Tokyo. -- Ellie I support my team-mates all the way, the whole of

:23:59.:24:03.

ParalympicsGB and Olympics GB. Where a great team and we're proud to be

:24:04.:24:07.

British, so it's great. We were talking about the growth of some

:24:08.:24:10.

other sports. Taekwondo has grown, even from when you were there in

:24:11.:24:15.

London, 2012? I remember going to London on the would say, what sport

:24:16.:24:20.

do you do? They didn't know what taekwondo was. Now I'm going on the

:24:21.:24:24.

bus and everyone is screaming Jay Jones and knows me and knows the

:24:25.:24:27.

sport, it's just unbelievable, really, the difference in a few

:24:28.:24:33.

years. -- Jade Jones. What was the difference between competing in

:24:34.:24:37.

London and Rio? In London I was just a young kid that went there and

:24:38.:24:42.

bought my heart out and won. This time it was so different. I had all

:24:43.:24:46.

that pressure going into it. I didn't think how much better it

:24:47.:24:51.

would be until I got there. It was just light relief, more than

:24:52.:25:00.

anything. Lutalo seems to be working the crowd differently to what's

:25:01.:25:06.

going on on stage. The final sport is the triathlon team!

:25:07.:25:13.

# Gold, you've got the power to know # You are indestructible

:25:14.:25:17.

# Always believed # You are gold #.

:25:18.:25:27.

We have our men's competitors here. Alistair and Jonny Brownlee!

:25:28.:25:34.

CHEERING Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, we were

:25:35.:25:37.

having a bit of the debate because we were saying, will they come or

:25:38.:25:39.

won't they? They are not the kind of guys that

:25:40.:25:42.

say yes, here we are, we are fabulous. What you make of this

:25:43.:25:47.

afternoon? It's been fantastic. I would have preferred if the coaches

:25:48.:25:53.

had carried on going along the M62 going home... At least we would have

:25:54.:25:58.

got some sunshine then. Thanks for joining us, goodbye! He's kidding,

:25:59.:26:04.

he's kidding. You are joking, right? Of course. The support has been

:26:05.:26:09.

fantastic. You do spend your life travelling and embracing all over

:26:10.:26:12.

the place, you don't quite get a grasp of how many people, hopefully

:26:13.:26:17.

follow what you do. That's what events like these are so special,

:26:18.:26:20.

seeing people on the side of the road cheering you on and they've

:26:21.:26:23.

been watching the Olympics, fantastic. Let's talk of Mexico,

:26:24.:26:29.

that photo of the two of you and you helping him went viral. CHEERING

:26:30.:26:38.

I'm not going to get heat exhaustion tonight, I'm telling you that! It

:26:39.:26:43.

was incredible. I went to hospital the night after the race and I woke

:26:44.:26:47.

up and turned my phone and it crashed and you realised how viral

:26:48.:26:51.

that video when. It's a weird situation in sport when you actually

:26:52.:26:54.

become more well known for losing a race venue did for winning the race.

:26:55.:27:00.

If anything came out of it, it's very good for the sport and it made

:27:01.:27:05.

Alistair good as well. You are both very, very good for the sport and

:27:06.:27:08.

we're very grateful you are here. Ladies and gentlemen, despite his

:27:09.:27:12.

comments, a massive round of applause, Alistair and Jonny

:27:13.:27:13.

Brownlee! CHEERING

:27:14.:27:19.

Have you had a good afternoon? Brilliant. Ellie Simmonds said it

:27:20.:27:23.

best, is she so proud to be British. It's so easy to understand when you

:27:24.:27:26.

see a crowd like this that come out and braved the rain, they braved the

:27:27.:27:32.

wind and go wild for our incredible GB athletes. We have to say, one

:27:33.:27:38.

massive, big round of applause once again for Team GB and ParalympicsGB.

:27:39.:27:47.

Good night. It has been a wonderful reminder of what was a super summer

:27:48.:27:53.

in Rio for Team GB and for many of these athletes out here this is the

:27:54.:27:57.

last hurrah, the last party, the hard work starts very soon, as they

:27:58.:28:00.

go back to training ready for another cycle. But fear not, because

:28:01.:28:06.

Tokyo is only 1376 days away. From all of us, a very good night.

:28:07.:29:02.

Semi... ..finals. I think the flavour's perfect.

:29:03.:29:05.

Drama. Jeopardy. I just haven't been sleeping.

:29:06.:29:07.

Excitement. Tension. This is manic.
