Co-host Clara Amfo gushed of the much-loved Team GB athletes: ‘It would be understatement to say that the road to Tokyo 2020 has not been easy for Team GB but their dedication and passion to the sports they love has been nothing short of inspiring!

‘I am so honoured to be hosting Team GB Homecoming Concert with Greg, on what promises to be a brilliant show full of celebration and love!

‘Every single athlete deserves the very best homecoming and what better place than Wembley with these world class artists!’  

The celebration will re-unite Team GB with their friends, family and fans for the first time since Tokyo 2020, which closed with an emotional ceremony on Sunday.

Team GB finished the Games with the same number of medals as at London 2012 but were beaten by the USA, China and Japan for the top spots.

Jason Kenny’s record breaking gold medal moved GB up to 64 medals on Sunday, while Lauren Price victory in the middleweight final allowed them to replicate history.

 As a result, Team GB finished fourth in the Tokyo medals table with 22 gold, 21 silver and 22 bronze medals for a total of 65.

It made Tokyo their second-most successful Olympics overseas after the contingent won 67 medals in the Rio de Janeiro Games five years ago.

Britain’s chef de mission Mark England hailed the team’s achievement as the greatest in their Olympic history, saying: ‘Following Beijing we had no idea that British athletes would deliver 65 medals in London.

 ‘We knew we were in great shape for Rio but it had never been done before, matching and then surpassing London’s number of medals.

‘I just think that finishing this Games with two gold medals, and for this team to deliver 65 medals, is absolutely extraordinary.
