Two volunteer volleyball sand-rakers have cracked the Commonwealth Games and gone viral with a little help from Queen and some killer moves. The volunteers raking up the sand during the beach volleyball interval wowed the audience with their own Freddie Mercury-inspired entertainment.

During Monday's beach volleyball event, the agile pair suddenly started strutting their stuff and dancing to Queen's I Want to Break Free which was playing over the speakers, using their rakes as props and amazing the Birmingham crowd with their flexible moves, rake-dancing and some impressive splits.

The official BBC Sport account applauded: "1st August, 2022, an ICON was born. A chance was taken today at the Commonwealth Games, and it was executed PERFECTLY."

"Goodness me," said a commentator watching the action. "That's brilliant flexibility. But now you need to go rake the court!" he said after watching him go into the splits.

"That has made my day!" exclaimed one user.

"What a legend," wrote another.

A third simply wrote: "Awesome!!!"

Others penned: "I want to rake free!"
