The Olympic Torch is continuing its tour of the country with the youngest person to carry the flame among the torchbearers.
Dominic MacGowan, 12, from Harborne, said he was proud to have carried the torch through Sparkbrook in Birmingham.
The youngster, who plays for West Bromwich Albion's under 12s shadow squad, said he hoped to be an Olympic footballer one day.
On the club's website he said: "I can't believe I'm the youngest torchbearer and would like to do it again, only as an Olympian.
"My goal is to take part in the Olympics Games as an athlete and at the moment football is my favourite sport, so I'd like to be an Olympic footballer."
Faith leaders from across Birmingham prepared a special breakfast at Sparkhill Park to reflect the diversity of faiths in the city and to mark the event of the torch coming there.
The Bishop of Birmingham, the Rt Reverend David Urquhart, was joined by leaders from the Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist, Hindu and Jewish communities, who each lit candles and read out a faith pledge.
People were invited to join in the pledge and to take one of the candles home with them.
Bishop David said: "The pledge will re-affirm our shared commitment to working together for the good of all who live in this wonderful, diverse city and I hope the candles burning in hundreds of homes will remind us of our shared hope for a peaceful, just, and joy-filled city where everyone can flourish and the most vulnerable in our community are valued, respected and treated with dignity and love."
Among the other torchbearers carrying the flame is 13-year-old Charlotte Moore, from Coventry, who is the UK's number one under-16 wheelchair tennis player and under-15 racer
