Sixteen days of coverage will feature across 98 screens in seven UK cities including Liverpool (above) and Leeds.

The film vignettes are supported by content from Olympics sponsors including Omega, DFS and Strongbow.

Ocean CEO Tim Bleakley said: “Working with Team GB and being recognised as a live streaming platform is a milestone moment for Ocean and digital out of home. Exclusive content from the Olympics in such high impact environments with full broadcast capabilities transforms the way brands are using our medium to reach wider audiences.”

Ocean’s large format screens are turning either bronze, silver or gold as the medal tally rises, with accompanying exclusive media content supplied by Getty images.
