The rapper tells Capital FM how much it meant to him to be able to run with the London 2012 Olympic Torch.

Wretch 32 has revealed that he might have his London 2012 Olympic Torch buried next to his headstone.

The 'Don't Go' rapper ran with the Torch during a section of its journey through Boscombe earlier this month.

Speaking to Capital FM at the Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola in London's Hyde Park, Wretch – a Londoner – admitted it meant a lot to be able to take part in the relay.

"I ran with that Torch. That's not coming out of my house, anywhere I live that's there," he said.

"I think I might even make that be buried next to my headstone."

Wretch 32 kicked off the Olympic Torch Relay Finale concert in Hyde Park earlier with a well-received set on the outdoor stage.

As well as live performances, the event will also celebrate the 8,000 torchbearers who have carried the Olympic Flame on its 70-day journey around the UK.

This includes the Coca-Cola Future Flames - a group of people who have done inspiring work in their local communities around the country.
