Dizzee Rascal first debuted his official Olympics song during a headline spot at a festival last summer. There was no mention of the Games at the time, although with exactly 12 months to go and the rapper himself hailing from a neighbouring town to the stadium, we're almost embarrassed that we didn't do the maths.

"I feel like Rocky on the steps/ I could have drowned in the blood and the sweat," he insists over punchy beats, swooping strings and twinky electro-swizzles, his flow still packing a considerable punch. As with most sports songs this summer it's not the most lyrically adventurous ("Scream it from your heart/ Feel it from your soul," guest star Pepper sings on the chorus), but as a rousing stadium-filler, it does the job nicely.
