A series of themed regional evening events are also being run at the house, including Brazil night and Russia night to bring athletes and their families from these destinations together to celebrate.

The "Thank-you mum" campaign is the first time P&G has brought all of its brands together under the one umbrella - they are usually marketed separately.

P&G's brands sponsor more than 150 athletes that are competing at the 2012 Games.
