No they will keep the flame lit in London throughout the games and then return it to Athens when the games are done
Not sure if they keep the flame lit in Athens whilst a flame from it is sent to the country hosting that years games.

Steve Redgrave is an out and out snob. He opened a new sports arena in our town and spoke to no-one except the Mayor. Wouldn't sign any autographs. He was there for about 15 mins, had a cup tea and left £10k richer. What a waste of money.
