There was no lengthy premable from Mick Jagger as the Rolling Stones as they joined the concert.

“Here’s one I hope you know," said the singer. "You can join in if you want.”

And with that, the band launched into their 1968 hit You Can't Always Get What You Want, all from separate locations - and with a bit of help from a backing track, since drummer Charlie Watts only had a few flight cases and a decrepit armchair to bash from his front room.

Tributes paid to artist Paul Karslake after cornavirus death

Jo Wood, the former wife of The Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood, has paid tribute to her brother Paul Karslake, who has died from the coronavirus.

On Twitter she described the Leigh-on-Sea artist, who was in his early 60s, as "a great man", her "hero" and his death has left her "heartbroken".

"He was so brilliant.. proud that he was my brother."

His website said he was taken to hospital on Sunday with breathing problems but passed away.
