"Early indications are another stunning #BBC2012 ceremonies audience," Roger Mosey, Director of London 2012 at the BBC wrote on Twitter.

The 22.9 million figure represented an audience share of 81 percent and topped the previous highest number of UK viewers of an Olympics closing ceremony, which was Barcelona's in 1992, the paper said.

The ceremony that closed the Barcelona Games attracted an average British audience of 11 million, the paper added.
