Diana Ross hadn't played in the UK for well over a decade when she popped up to headline the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Party at the Palace earlier this month.

She's currently on a full UK tour of her comeback album Thank You, and that included the Legend's Slot on Sunday afternoon on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Sunday night.

The disco icon walked in the footsteps of legends before her, including Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue, Neil Diamond, Leonard Cohen and Dolly Parton.

Diana Ross opened the set with her 1980 hit 'I'm Coming Out', before playing a career-spanning set featuring hits from her solo years, as well as songs by her former 1960s group The Supremes.

As well as three songs from her most recent album, Ross played several covers she has enjoyed success with over the years, including Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and set closer 'I Will Survive', originally by Gloria Gaynor.
