Prince Harry hosts concert to close Invictus Games in London

Prince Harry hosts a live concert featuring the Foo Fighters and Ellie Goulding to mark the close of the Invictus Games in London.

Prince Harry hosted a concert for 25,000 people to mark the end of the Invictus Games in London at the weekend.

Four hundred injured servicemen and women took part in the week-long Games, which included Paralympic-style events.

During the concert, Prince Harry praised the wounded soldiers by saying: "These Games have shone a spotlight on the unconquerable character of servicemen and women and their families - their invictus spirit.

"These Games have been about seeing guys sprinting for the finish line and then turning round to clap the last man in.

"They have been about teammates choosing to cross the line together - not wanting to come second, but not wanting the other guys to either. These Games have shown the very best of the human spirit."

The Foo Fighters, Kaiser Chiefs, The Vamps, Rizzle Kicks, James Blunt, Ellie Goulding, Ryan Adams and Military Wives Choir all performed during the concert.
