STORY: The London Eye, a giant wheel which turns to allow spectators to view the capital from on high, is currently lit up in the colours of the Rugby World Cup finalists.
Australia’s Wallabies and New Zealand’s All Blacks will contest the final at Twickenham on Saturday (October 31), having fought through the tournament without losing a game.
The Eye’s 32 viewing capsules are lit up in either green and gold for Australia, or white and black for New Zealand.
Earlier, 20 of the capsules were decorated with a special wrap depicting the logo of the participating nations in the tournament.
The Eye is located by the side of the Thames river in the centre of London, opposite the Houses of Parliament.
