Glastonbury viewers were left in tears on Saturday night as Coldplay brought on a 'legendary' special guest

The group, fronted by Chris Martin, took to the stage with their fifth Glastonbury headline slot on the Pyramid Stage. The band rattled through hit after hit including Yellow, Adventure of A Lifetime and Viva la Vida.

Toward the end of the near two-hour-set lead singer Chris Martin introduced an extra-special guest - Hollywood actor and Back to The Future star Michael J Fox.
