As 80,000 spectators were dazzled by the spectacle of the Olympics closing ceremony, people at home were dazzled by something else.

During a performance by the Spice Girls, cameras cut to a VIP area of the stadium and caught London Mayor Boris Johnson attempting to throw some shapes.

David Cameron alongside him appeared to be having as much success.

Presenter Clare Balding said she was "crying with laughter". She tweeted: "Have had to rewind to Boris throwing those shapes & watch it three times."

Footballer Rio Ferdinand tweeted: ‘"waaaarn... Go on Boris Johnson, bopping + I swear singing along to the Spice Girls... Big! Hahaha classic from the future PM!!"

See it happen here...
