Speculation has been rife this week over whether two new Olympic-themed works by street artist Banksy are in Hackney.
The elusive artist posted images of his new creations on his website on Monday but left fans the task of locating them.
One stencil shows an athlete throwing a missile rather than a javelin. The other is of a pole vaulter clearing a barbed wire fence and heading for a dirty mattress.
The BBC reported that the pieces are called Hackney Welcomes the Olympics and Going for Mould.
