A source told the Daily Mirror: "Chris is at the top of the list to front the official record. He's a huge star and a British musical icon, with an international profile. We're pulling out all the stops to get hold of him, ideally with the rest of Coldplay involved, too.
"Coldplay are the biggest stadium rockers in Britain today and their style of anthemic music would be perfect for the Olympics. The hope is that they would perform at the opening ceremony, as well as produce a recording of the track, which could help fund good causes in British sport." more on this story
