Sir Paul managed to get through the entire performance without anyone pulling the plug.

“And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make” became a message to the world by the 70-year old superstar. The world then got to sing-a-long to his Beatles hit ‘Hey Jude’ with Paul dividing the chant between the males and females in the audience.

The four hour opening ceremony included appearances from the Arctic Monkeys and Dizzee Rascal and a music setlist of British music highlights put together by filmmaker Danny Boyle.

Watch James Bond escort the Queen to the Olympics.

A soundtrack from the ceremony is planned for release on August 12.
