London 2012 chairman Lord Coe said the Olympic closing ceremony will be a fun tribute to British music and described it as an "after show party".
It's not anything desperately profound. It's not the opening ceremony but I think it will be great. It's basically a tribute to British music over the last few decades. It's fun.
Organisers from the Rio 2016 Games will be given an eight-minute slot in the ceremony with Brazilian supermodel Alessandro Ambrosio saying:
I have been doing a lot of rehearsal so my highlight has been to mix with everybody. There are about 300 people from Brazil plus all the people who are participating in the closing ceremony. We were doing the show with the Spice Girls and everybody. I saw them there.
