Victoria Beckham has said performing at the London 2012 Olympics was “one of her proudest moments” with the Spice Girls as she reminisced about the performance ahead of the opening of the Tokyo games.

The singer and fashion designer shared a photo of herself singing at the closing ceremony in London, as well as a video of the group singing to their hit song Spice Up Your Life while dancing on top of decorated black taxis.

Beckham, 47, wrote on Instagram: “One of the proudest @spicegirls moments, closing the London 2012 Olympics.

“I love you @emmaleebunton @melaniecmusic @officialmelb @therealgerihalliwell

“Sharing these moments in honour of the #Tokyo2020 @olympics starting today sending so much luck to @teamgb!”

Beckham also shared a video of her husband David arriving in style at the London Olympics opening ceremony as he travelled up the Thames in a speed boat to the Bond film theme tune.
