Robbie Williams put on a fantastic show as he closed out this year's British Summer Time festival in London's Hyde Park last night (July 14).

The 'Feel' singer performed for two hours, entertaining the thousands of attendees as you'd expect from such a showman.

His set included a mix of classic hits like 'Angels' and 'Come Undone', forgotten favourites like 'No Regrets' and 'Eternity', and singalong covers such as 'Land of 1,000 Dances' and 'It Wasn't Me'.

One of several highlights included bringing out his father Pete for a burst of Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline', and giving a personal serenade to fan Leslie on 'Somethin' Stupid', after he brought her up on stage:

Sadly, there was no surprise appearance from Take That on 'Never Forget' (he brought up his former X Factor acts for that one), or Kylie Minogue on 'Kids', but he didn't need them.

"I wouldn't go without doing the hit," he said before bursting into old favourite 'Angels', which still sounds rather euphoric in such a stunning atmosphere in the heart of the summer.

His encore was simply to kickstart a singalong of 'My Way', before telling everyone: "I've got a smile in my heart and a bigger one of my face." So did we!
