Team GB’s record breakers to fly home for Tuesday

Great Britain’s record-breaking Olympics team will return from Rio and land in London on Tuesday morning.

Britain is the first country to improve on a home medal tally at the following Games, collecting 67 to beat the 65 from London 2012.

Some team members have returned home already, but 320 athletes and support staff will be on British Airways flight BA2016 scheduled to land at Heathrow. The Boeing 747 will have a gold nose cone and a “victoRIOus” livery.(BBC,2016)
