Ahead of the London 2012 closing ceremony last night, former Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley put on a private show for Team GB, performing the band’s hit ‘Gold’.

Though, of course, not everyone in Team GB is a gold medal winner. Had they really been on the ball, they would have had a larger line-up so that everyone involved had their position covered – 90s Canadian rockers Moist could have done ‘Silver’, Queens Of The Stone Age could have done their little known song ‘The Bronze’, and then Beck could have finished up with ‘Loser’.

No, wait, that’s the sort of cheap gag we’d have rolled out before London 2012 changed everything and we all became relentlessly optimistic. No one is a loser at the Olympics, and Tony Hadley quite rightly marked everyone on the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Olympic Team as gold. So there.

Here he is, singing and that.
