Contrary to the expectations of some people before the games, the air quality in Beijing has actually been reasonably good thanks to the anti pollution measures taken by the authorities and a heavy storm that blew it away.
The skies above Beijing are currently clear and blue.
International Olympic Committee's medical commission chairman, Arne Ljungqvist, said:
"The information so far is very encouraging. The recent... days have had very good air conditions indeed.
There is no indication that there will be a problem in the near future."
However, World Health Organisation China chief Hans Troedsson noted that pollution in Beijing still presented long-term health risks to residents.
