The Stone Roses hailed Team GB's gold medal-winning athletes Jessica Ennis and Bradley Wiggins at their intimate London show last night (August 6), calling the pair – who were both in attendance – "the real King and Queen of England".

The band played a surprise tiny gig at the Adidas Underground in support of the London 2012 Olympic Games, performing an hour-long set in front of an audience that also included rower Pete Reed, Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, actor John Simm, Example, Wretch 32 and bassist Mani’s former Primal Scream bandmate Bobby Gillespie. Cycling champ Bradley Wiggins also partied with Paul Weller after the gig, thus realising a long-held ambition for the confirmed mod and Weller fan.

Before taking the stage just before midnight at the intimate east London venue, nearby to the Olympic Park, Ian Brown joked: "Sorry we’re late, we were having a shoot-out backstage!"

The band, who were supported by rising star Jake Bugg, played an 11-song, hit-filled set which included 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'Fools Gold', 'This Is The One', 'She Bangs The Drums' and the closing 'I Am The Resurrection'.

The Stone Roses will headline next month's V Festival in Chelmsford and Stafforshire as well as Northern Ireland's Tennent's Vital Festival.

The Stone Roses played:

'I Wanna Be Adored'
'Waterfall'
'Don't Stop'
'Shoot You Down'
'Fools Gold'
'Something's Burning'
‘Love Spreads’
'Made Of Stone’
'This Is The One'
'She Bangs The Drums'
'I Am The Resurrection'
