The last American gold of the Olympics did not come easily, as a U.S. basketball team that included Lebron James and Kobe Bryant at one point were behind Spain on the final afternoon of Olympic sport.

The U.S. basketball gold was the Americans’ last of 46, for a total of 104. That put them well ahead of no. 2 China, which won 87 medals, including 38 golds. Britain won 29 golds, third-most of any nation, and 65 medals overall — good for fourth in that category behind Russia, a winner of 82 medals, 24 of them gold.

The games ended with a huge party in the main stadium that began with a shout-out to Winston Churchill and a celebration of the Union Jack. It including rock ‘n’ roll rickshaws, dustbin percussionists, an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red tunics.
