Nanjinglele and Pride the Lion on tour in London

May 28th, 2014

He made a stop last week in London, UK, for a quick sightseeing tour with friendly Team GB mascot Pride the Lion.

Their first stop was the Olympic Stadium, followed by many other London 2012 venues, such as the Horse Guards Parade that hosted the Beach Volleyball event , the velodrome and the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Olympic Park.

The mascots also had a lot of fun taking pictures with iconic British landmarks and sights like Big Ben, the famous red telephone boxes, black cabs and a trip on the London Underground!

They ended the day with a cup of English tea, and Pride taught NANJINGLELE how to make a proper “cuppa”.
