Addressing the crowds before singing the 1996 single, he said: “I was sat watching Sky News and watching the minute silence. And one girl that was there and sang this song. And I don’t know if you’re here tonight, but I love you.”
After telling the crowds how the song has become an "anthem of defiance," he added: “And every time you sing we win. So sing like you’ve never sung!”
