Madonna spotted at Wireless Festival as she runs on-stage during Migos

Drake made a surprise appearance at the Wireless Festival in London on Sunday after DJ Khaled cancelled due to "travel issues".

Fans then speculated as to who would take his place, with the Wireless Festival taking to Twitter promising something special.

He was also the only African artist to take the stage.
