For all the monkey lovers out there –

Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy head on a "Journey to the East" for BBC Sport this summer.

This animated sequence, based on the classical Chinese novel, "Journey to the West", has been produced by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the men behind virtual band Gorillaz.

It will feature on TV, radio, web and mobile, introducing coverage of the Games on BBC Sport – the Olympic broadcaster in the UK.

    Thanks for explaining this little advert for me! Living in England, and watching this with no explanation of it (it's just been shown) I had no clue what it was all about, or what it was for! Makes a lot more sense now! It certainly is different to the normal show adverts and credits!
