Measurement of the elastic differential cross-section in proton-proton interactions at a centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s} = 7\;\text{TeV}$ at the LHC. The data, which cover the $|t|$ range $0.005-0.2\;\text{GeV}^2$, were collected using Roman Pot detectors very close to the outgoing beam in October 2011, allowing the precise extrapolation down to the optical point, $t = 0$, and hence the derivation of the elastic as well as the total cross-section via the optical theorem.
