The 'Never Forget' four-piece wrapped an impressive closing ceremony for the end of the Games.

Take That helped close a crowd-pleasing closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games this evening (12th August).

Gary Barlow, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Howard Donald all took the the stage at the Olympic Stadium dressed in military inspired outfits to belt out their huge hit single 'Rule The World', ahead of the extinguishing of the Olympic flame today.

The 'Never Forget' four-piece had been rumoured for the closing ceremony showcase last week, but the tragic loss of Gary Barlow's unborn daughter Poppy had cast doubts on the expected appearance of the popular band.

However, Take That joined the thousands in attendance at the stadium to perform live at the highly anticipated ceremony, which also saw performances from the likes of One Direction, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Queen and The Spice Girls.

Following Take That's performance legendary rock band The Who entered the stadium to perform several hits as the grand finale of the London 2012 Olympic Games, including their anthem 'My Generation'.

The Olympic flame was officially handed over to Eduardo Paes, the mayor of Rio De Janeiro, ready for the Olympic Games there in 2016.
