Sport Relief 2014: Gary Barlow and Lineker unveil Take That's Greatest Day as official England 2014 FIFA World Cup song
Katy B, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Eliza Doolitle, Pixie Lott and Conor Maynard also star in the football anthem
Gary Barlow and Gary Lineker unveiled Take That's "Greatest Day" as the official England 2014 FIFA World Cup song during Sport Relief 2014.
The Take That frontman and the former England footballer were joined by Katy B, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Eliza Doolitle, Pixie Lott and Conor Maynard.
So far, the response to the track - first released by the boyband (now a manband) in 2008 - has been largely positive... From fans of Take That.
The rest of the nation appears to agree that it's tough to imagine hardened football supporters belting out a Barlow classic in the stands, the pub or the street any time soon.
Is it better than 2010's utterly forgettable "Wavin Flag"? Yes, judging on the below responses (scroll down to read them). But no, it isn't anywhere near taking over from "Three Lions" any time soon.
If anyone sung this "Greatest Day" on the terraces Channel 4 would be doing another documentary within 4 monthsBrad (@bradyates_) March 21, 2014
