A controversial artist has produced a fitting work to commemorate the 2012 Olympics – a mechanical sculpture of an athlete doing push-ups, made from a traditional London bus.

With two giant arms and an electrical engine, the 1957 bus has been transformed into a piece of art by Czech sculptor David Cerny. The work, named London Boosted, has been installed outside the Czech Olympic House in Islington, north London, to mark the Games’ opening in the capital on Friday.
