In news that makes the Spice Girls appearance at the London 2012 closing ceremony seem as exciting as Geri Halliwell's yoga DVD, British music legend Kate Bush is rumoured to be performing at this weekend's Olympics closing ceremony.

Tongues are wagging after a 2012 remix was listed for release on Amazon on 12 August - which coincides with the end of the London Olympic Games. The link has since been removed from the website, but a clip of a remix of the track has been uploaded to YouTube. Listen below.

Kate Bush is famously reclusive, and has not toured since 1979. In an interview in 2011 however, she told Classic Rock Magazine she still wanted to perform live. "I do hope that some time I get a chance to do some shows," she said. "Maybe not a tour, but something."

Now, her legions of fans are hoping this will be that 'something'.

The Spice Girls are also set to perform at the ceremony, along with Take That, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, One Direction and Elbow, Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennow and Madness, who have all been named as potential performers.
