FORMER athlete Allan Watt returned to his old primary school recently to usher in the coming Olympic Games.

The 91-year-old, from Giffnock, visited nearby Giffnock primary school as the youngsters received the schools relay torch, currently making its way across East Renfrewshire in celebration of London 2012.

Allan, a Scottish athletics record holder, was also a member of the British team competing in the 1948 Games, also in London.
