The Spice Girls have been seen rehearsing for the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.

Photographs obtained by The Sun newspaper show the five reunited band members practicing a routine on top of black taxi cabs.

Victoria Beckham, Geri Haliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm were photographed practicing their moves at a secret rehearsal.

More than 20 acts will perform at the Olympics closing ceremony, with a line-up consisting of pop and rock legends. George Michael, Annie Lennox, Jessie J, the Pet Shop Boys, Tinie Tempah and Queen guitarist Brian May were also spied at the rehearsals for Sunday night's ceremony.

The show, titled A Symphony Of British Music, is being overseen by David Arnold, who has written music for James Bond movies and TV shows Sherlock and Little Britain.

He told The Telegraph newspaper "To me, this should be the greatest after-party in the world. If the Opening Ceremony was the wedding, then we’re the wedding reception. We’re the one where everyone gets out of their cars at the village hall, goes 'Wasn’t that lovely, everyone looked great, let’s put on Blame It On the Boogie and have a laugh'."
