Olympic chief admits London concern.
The London Mayor looked less than happy as Vijay Kumar Malhotra, acting president of the Indian Olympic Association, said there was apprehension amongst the Indians that London's transport system could prove chaotic as millions of visitors descended on the capital. But Mr Malhotra managed to avoid a minor diplomatic incident as he then praised the way London handled the Games as a "great success".
"We had some sort of apprehension that there would be some chaotic experience there as far as transport is concerned but it was very, very smooth," he said.
"It was a flawless performance.
The village there as well as all the stadiums, and the hospitality, was superb."
His comments came as Mr Johnson shared a stage with the Indian Olympic executive at the British High Commission, where he presented two petals from the Olympic cauldron.
