Chris Martin and his bandmates performed an amazing set featuring their biggest hits while paralympians, volunteers and organisers partied away. Ri-Ri then made her grand entrance on a pirate ship, wearing a floor-length orange dress and bright lips to match. She sang Princess Of China with the band, and was then accompanied by Jay-Z who belted out Run This Town with the acts.
Lord Sebastian Coe thanked the Games Makers for their hard work throughout the Olympics and Paralympics, as the 80,000-strong audience rose for a standing ovation.
We saw some incredible sporting achievements and aren’t ashamed to say we sobbed a little. London, you’ve been amazing – we’re missing the Olympics already! RM
