LONDON (AP) -- The queen and James Bond gave the London Olympics a royal entrance like no other Friday in an opening ceremony that rolled to the rock of the Beatles, the Stones and The Who.
And the creative genius of Danny Boyle spliced it all together.
Brilliant. Cheeky, too.
The highlight of the Oscar-winning director's $42 million show was pure movie magic, using trickery to make it seem that Britain's beloved 86-year-old Queen Elizabeth II had parachuted into the stadium with the nation's most famous spy.
A short film showed Daniel Craig as 007 driving to Buckingham Palace in a black London cab and, pursued by the royal corgis, meeting the queen, who played herself.
''Good evening, Mr. Bond,'' she said.
LONDON (AP) - More than 100 people were arrested during a protest by cyclists during the Olympics opening ceremony, police said Saturday.
Scotland Yard said two groups of protesters were arrested near the Olympic Park on suspicion of breaching protest conditions and causing a public nuisance.
The cyclists were identified as members of an activist cycling club that meets monthly for mass bike rides.
A police order had prohibited the protesters from traveling into the Olympic Park area in east London during Friday night's opening ceremony, but members had tried to pedal their way through the security cordon.

The email and letter were obtained by The Associated Press on Friday.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels made their latest big move, acquiring ace pitcher Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers for rookie shortstop Jean Segura and two minor leaguers.
By winning the sweepstakes for Greinke, perhaps the most-prized arm available before Tuesday's trade deadline, the aggressive Angels followed up a huge offseason highlighted by the big-money signings of free-agent stars Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson.
Greinke joins an outstanding rotation that includes fellow All-Stars Jered Weaver, Dan Haren, Wilson and Ervin Santana, who has struggled badly this season.
