Prince Harry has launched a new sporting event for injured British servicemen after being inspired by a similar event in the US.
The prince unveiled the Invictus Games alongside Boris Johnson and Defence Secretary Philip Hammond at the Olympic Park in east London.
Harry has been working to bring the event to the UK after seeing British veterans competing in the Warrior Games in the US last year.
He joked that it was "such a good idea by the Americans that it had to be stolen".
War veteran Frederick Leach is set to be given a fitting send-off after an appeal for people to pay tribute to him at his funeral.
Mr Leach, who was 94-years-old, fought in the Second World War and was involved in especially heavy fighting in Norway. But he has no known family, leading to an appeal for people to attend his final farewell from Redcar and Cleveland Council, which had been managing his care
The appeal comes days after hundreds of people responded to a similar call to attend the funeral of Dambusters veteran Harold Jellicoe Percival, who served as ground crew in the famous raids in May 1943. He died aged 99 after never marrying or having children.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage has welcomed the news that the Arctic Convoy Veterans of WW2 will begin receiving medals in recognition of their heroism and bravery.
Around 400 Veterans will march on Parliament today in protest at the decision to axe a battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) amid claims the move defies "military logic".
Dozens of MP's are set to call on the Government to reconsider the decision to disband the 2nd battalion, which critics claim was motivated by a "political fix" rather than an assessment by defence chiefs.
Ministers will be accused of axing the battalion under the Army cuts programme in order to avoid scrapping Scottish units ahead of the 2014 referendum on independence.
