London Olympics 2012: Usain Bolt’s Olympic win watched by record 20m viewers in UK	London: More than 20 million viewers watched Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt’s glorious victory in the men`s 100 metre final, marking the highest audience in live sporting action so far in the London Olympics 2012.

According to the BBC, between 21:50 and 21:55 on Sunday, 19.4 million viewers watched on BBC One as Bolt won his second 100m gold, while another 628,000 viewers saw the final on the dedicated games channel BBC Olympics 3, and a further 66,000 watched in 3D on the BBC HD channel.

Earlier, a peak audience of 10.7 million watched Andy Murray make history at Wimbledon by becoming Great Britain`s first men`s singles gold medal winner in 104 years, the report said.

The Olympics opening ceremony was found as the BBC`s most watched programme of the Games so far, peaking at 26.9 million, in which the average viewing figure for the four-hour show, broadcasted on BBC One and BBC HD, was 22.4 million, making it the UK`s 13th most watched programme ever.


The programme also had an 82 percent share, almost twice that of Barcelona 1992, the previous high for an Olympic opening ceremony.

The survey revealed that the biggest audience ever in the UK for a single programme was 30.5 million, who saw EastEnders on 25 December 1986, the report added.
