Ryan Bertrand has claimed he would have been "crazy" to turn down the chance of appearing at the Olympics.

The Southwark-born defender was in the Olympic stadium as part of the parade of the teams as Danny Boyle's magnificent opening ceremony ushered in London 2012. The unique experience is one of the reasons why the 23-year-old had no doubts over accepting Stuart Pearce's call, even though it meant missing Chelsea's pre-season campaign.

"This was a massive opportunity," he said. "It would have been crazy for anyone to turn down the chance of being involved in the Olympics with Great Britain."
