TWO CHEEKY schoolboys got their hands on the Olympic torch as it was carried out of Coventry.
This is the moment the grinning lads - wearing beanies and school uniforms - ran in the road to get their own perspective of the torch relay earlier today (Monday).
They pounced as the Exhall-made torch was passed along by five NHS workers picked to carry it at 7.20am. Police grabbed the duo and placed them back in the crowd after the stunt.
It happened as the torch left Coventry, with 18-year-old torchbearer Ali Abdillahi kicking off day 45 of the relay from Millennium Place just after 7am.
Thousands of people made the journey into the city centre, despite the early start time, a day after huge crowds welcomed the torch to Coventry.
