London 2012: Royals and athletes attend Olympics gala

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended a gala performance at London's Royal Albert Hall, to celebrate Great Britain's Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

Among those performing at the Our Greatest Team Rises event were singers Gary Barlow, Will Young and Alfie Bo, and former Britain's Got Talent winners Spelbound.

Speaking at the event, Prince William said that London should take "huge pride" in becoming the only city to host the Olympic Games three times.

He also joked that he would not be taking part, after being told there were "London pigeons with more athletic prowess".
