The remaining members of Monty Python have announced that what is likely to be their final performance together will be streamed live in cinemas around the world.

The comedy troupe will give its last performance on 20th July at London's O2 arena.

They had previously said their shows in London would not lead to a wider world tour. Fans will be able to see the final show at 450 cinemas in the UK and a further 1,500 worldwide.
