Chris Martin will perform a special anthem at Britain's Prince Harry's Invictus Games event this September.

Chris Martin is writing a theme song for Britain's Prince Harry's Invictus Games.

The Coldplay frontman is penning an anthem for the 29-year-old royal's international sporting event for wounded service personnel, which is being held in London this September. The Magic hitmaker will perform the track live in front of an audience of 5,000 gathered on the South Lawn of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 10 September as the four-day event kicks off. Harry, who served 77 days on the front line in the Afghanistan war, has decided to bring the Games to the UK following an inspirational visit to USA Warrior Games last year.

'I am delighted that the first ever Invictus Games will take place on London's newest park'

Over 400 competitors from 14 countries are taking part in a number of sports, including swimming, wheelchair basketball, archery and road cycling.

Mayor Boris Johnson commented: "I am delighted that the first ever Invictus Games will take place on London's newest park and in its world-class sporting venues."

The opening ceremony is being broadcast live on the BBC and is being put together by Kim Gavin, the creative director of the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.

The Invictus Games are supported and organised by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and the Ministry of Defence. Tickets cost £12.85 from www.invictusgames.org
