Victoria Beckham hails Spice Girls’ London Olympics performance as one of her ‘proudest moments’ as Tokyo 2020 begins


The start of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics had Victoria Beckham feeling nostalgic about the Spice Girls’ performance at the London 2012 Olympics, dubbing it one of her ‘proudest moments’.

Victoria took to Instagram on the first day of the Tokyo Olympics to remind her followers of the Spice Girls’ incredible performance at the 2012 closing ceremony.

Sharing a photo of herself mid-performance as well as a clip of the band being driven around the stadium on the top of specially decorated black cabs while singing Spice Up Your Life, she spoke of the experience with pride.

‘One of the proudest @spicegirls moments, closing the London 2012 Olympics. I love you @emmaleebunton @melaniecmusic @officialmelb @therealgerihalliwell,’ Victoria wrote.

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

The Spice Girls’s performance was one of the standout moments from the 2012 games, amid a star-studded line-up.

Of course, Victoria wasn’t the only Beckham involved in London 2012, as husband David also had a starring role in the opening ceremony montage alongside Daniel Craig as James Bond.

Victoria reposted a video of David helping to transport the Olympic torch to the stadium on a speedboat, adding: ‘I wasn’t the only Beckham at the Olympics! Who could forget Mr Beckham’s 007 moment?!’

Her post comes in the same month the Spice Girls celebrated another huge milestone, as it was the 25th anniversary of their first single Wannabe, which shot the girls to fame.

The Tokyo Olympics have also finally begun, after being pushed back a year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The games were finally able to start in July 23, 2021, with elite athletes from around the world flying in to Tokyo to take part after a year of waiting.
