BBC ONE will mark Team GB’s return from the Tokyo Olympics with a special celebration concert.

The 90-minute gig will feature artists such as Nile Rodgers, Anne-Marie, Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man and Yungblud.


And BBC Radio 1 presenters Greg James and Clara Amfo will host the bash on August 15.

The event is set to take place at London’s SSE Arena and will be in front of 8,000 people.

James said: “As always with the Olympics, I’ve become an expert in events I only think about every four years.

“I can’t wait to celebrate our extraordinary Team GB athletes and be in front of an actual crowd again.

“It’s been a long time coming – it’s going to be a brilliant night.”

The event will also feature performances from the Rambert dance company and the English National Ballet.

It has also promised to ‘reunite Team GB with friends, family and the Great British public for the first time’ in a statement released by the Beeb.
