Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney will close out the Olympics Games opening ceremony with a performance of Hey Jude - and he'll ask the stadium's 60,000 spectators to sing along with him.
One billion people are expected to tune in to watch the spectacular three-hour show, which is being directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle and is costing £27 million to produce.
The largest harmonically tuned bell in the world will ring to mark the start of the ceremony at 9pm on July 27 - and the pop legend will bring it to a rousing finale at midnight.

The Blue Beatles tribute band and duo often close their show with an excellent rendition of Hey Jude. This classic Beatles song is an essential part of their repertoire. They deliberately leave it for the end of the show as it is the most commonly requested encore.
