Brit stadium rockers Muse have carried the Olympic torch into their hometown of Teignmouth in South West England on day two of the 70 day London Olympic Torch Relay.

Sporting matching white tracksuits, Matt Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard were cheered on by thousands of patriotic fans as they completed their 300 metre leg across local landmark Shaldon Bridge. Although they started off awkwardly posing for photos with the torch, the trio got the swapping-between-them technique down pat pretty quickly.

In true front man style, Bellamy couldn’t help but steal the show with slow-motion Baywatch inspired running technique and last minute snatching of the torch from his band mate. *Cue up Knights of Cydonia for added dramatic effect*
