Sir Chris Hoy, Jessica Ennis, Laura Trott and more of Team GB’s stars have appeared in a video miming to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now.
The video, which you can watch on this page, is part of adidas’s Take the Stage campaign and celebrates Team GB’s success at the Olympic Games.
David Beckham opens the video by calling “action” before Chris Hoy mimes the opening lines of the song.
Victoria Pendleton sings along - wearing a tiger costume at one point - and then appears with fellow cyclist Laura Trott, both playing air guitars.
Brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee, who won gold and bronze respectively in the men’s triathlon, are seen play fighting and then using water pistols against each other, while Jessica Ennis sings on a balcony.
The video also features Olympians including Phillips Idowu, wearing a blond wig, gymnast Louis Smith, and boxer Nicola Adams, who became the first female Olympic boxing champion when she won gold.
Beckham ends the video by calling “and cut” before a new hashtag from adidas’s comes on the screen: #stagetaken.
