Wretch 32 2012

Not many rappers can say that they’ve held the Olympic torch (we’re refusing to count will.i.am), but Wretch 32 can now add that to his long list of achievements. The 27-year-old was trusted to hold the torch while it made it’s way through the south of England on Saturday.

Considering it was such a big deal, the Forgiveness star kept it humble as always and tweeted:

Wretch rolls one up… oh no wait, that’s the Olympic torch

Aswell as being a part of the torch relay, Wretch also put on a special performance at Weymouth Beach to mark the arrival of the Olympic flame.

Can we officially start calling him a national treasure now?
