Myleene Klass has been helping visitors get into the Olympic spirit by playing the Chariots Of Fire theme to Heathrow arrivals.

The TV presenter, also a classically-trained musician, tinkled the ivories as passengers came through Terminal 5 at the airport.

Many overseas visitors of the 100,000-plus passengers who pass through are heading to London 2012.

Mum-of-two Myleene is playing a special arrangement of the Vangelis tune which was written for the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film about British sprinters preparing for - and competing in - the 1924 Olympics in Paris.

She said: "It's the first time I've played in an airport and I'm sure it will create a lasting memory both for me and Heathrow's passengers as we all look forward to the start of the Games."
