For whom the bell tolls: British cyclist Bradley Wiggins ringing the bell to officially mark the start of the Olympic games in London

The 2012 London Olympics bell has the lowest tone in the world - a sound that can be heard for miles around - and was first rung by Sir Bradley Wiggins during the £27million Olympics Opening Ceremony in 2012.
