Visitors to this year's Southampton Boat Show can see the speedboat which David Beckham drove down the River Thames to the Olympic opening ceremony.

The Bladerunner carried the Olympic Torch on the final part of its journey to the stadium. 

The boat was designed in Hampshire. Its main home is now in Farnham, Surrey. There are also plans to exhibit it at shows in the United States.
