At a War Child benefit gig as part of Xfm's Legend Series in London tonight (August 14), Noel dedicated his own performance of 'Wonderwall' to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band".

The gig, at Dingwalls in Camden, saw Noel play an intimate acoustic set comprised mainly of Oasis tracks including 'Talk Tonight', 'Whatever', 'Half the World Away' and 'Don't Look Back in Anger'.

The 45-year-old also dedicated 'Supersonic' to "the great Mo Farah", in recognition of his double gold medal-winning triumph in the 5,000m and 10,000m.

The singer-songwriter and High Flying Birds frontman recently declared that seeing Liam perform his songs with Beady Eye isn't an issue because he "gets paid every time they do it".
