Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters finished work on their eighth studio album earlier this week, as they produced the final touches to it alongside producer Butch Vig, best known for his work on Nirvana’s Nevermind.

The Invictus Games, which were launched by Prince Harry, is described as a “unique opportunity for the public to support to those who have made a personal sacrifice for others but focus on what they can achieve, post-injury”. Medals to the Games’ sporting stars will also be handed out during the closing ceremony.
