Ed Sheeran fans mistook the Pink Floyd song he performed alongside Nick Mason from the band at last night's Olympic Games closing ceremony for a new song.

Sheeran performed 'Wish You Were Here' inside the Olympic Stadium last night, playing the song alongside Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, Genesis' Mike Rutherford and The Feeling's Richard Jones.

However, understandably not boasting the widest knowledge of Pink Floyd's back catalogue, some Sheeranites confused the track for a new single.

Elsewhere at the closing ceremony, Liam Gallagher performed the Oasis classic 'Wonderwall' with his Beady Eye bandmates and Muse performed their Olympic single 'Survival'. George Michael also made an appearance, performing his hit single 'Freedom' as well as new track 'White Light'.

However, it was Jessie J who made perhaps the most contributions to the closing ceremony, performing by herself, with Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz and again with Queen. Dressed in a nude catsuit, Jessie sang 'Price Tag', 'Written In The Stars' and then joined Taio Cruz on a version of the Bee Gees' 'You Should Be Dancing' before singing 'We Will Rock You' alongside Brian May and Roger Taylor.

The closing ceremony bowed out in style, however, with The Who playing 'My Generation' to all 80,000 fans inside the stadium.
