Tottenham pop star Lemar will be among the top British talent joining Team GB’s Olympic heroes at the British Olympic Ball on Friday.

The sold-out event at the Grosvenor House hotel on Park Lane, has been branded the ‘ultimate Olympic year finale’, and will be attended by more than 70 London 2012 Olympic medalists including Tom Daley, Rebecca Adlington, Jade Jones, Anthony Joshua and Jonathan Brownlee.

Lemar, who grew up in Tottenham a stone’s throw from White Hart Lane, and attended St Paul’s & All Hallows Primary School, will be joined in performing by recent X-Factor contestent Ella Henderson and singer-songwriter Matt Cardle.

He said: “I loved watching our athletes perform this summer and it was great to see how much the British public embraced the Games. It is an honour to be supporting this special event and showing my continued support for Team GB.”

The gala ball, presented by BT and supported by BMW and BP, will be an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Our Greatest Team this summer and will act as a crucial fundraiser for the BOA to continue their support for current and future Olympic athletes.

For the 1,200 guests attending the star-studded event, the evening will feature a four-course dinner, highlights from the 2012 Games and a live auction conducted by TV presenter Jonny Gould.

Brazilian samba dancers ‘Oi Brazil’ will close the evening with a colourful carnival performance to give a flavour of the excitement ahead, as Team GB set their sights on the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
