Veteran rock 'n'roll group The Who brought the curtain down an incredible second day at the Isle of Wight Festival.

The iconic band received a heroes' welcome as they headlined the main stage at Seaclose Park tonight as 60,000 music lovers returned for a second day of entertainment from top groups from around the globe.

The Who's landmark gig came 46 years after they starred in a milestone 1970 Isle of Wight Festival featuring Jimi Hendrix and The Doors.

Anticipation had been building all day and the crowd cheered loudly as evergreen group took to the stage led by frontman Roger Daltrey holding aloft a Union Jack mug.

Guitarist Pete Townshend told the audience: "We're really, really proud and pleased to be here. We've been around the USA and all over the place but it's good to be home and at the Isle of Wight."

They broke into many of their classics including  "Who are You", "The Kids are Alright" and the seminal "My Generation" - with impressive graphics on the big screen behind including the silhouette of a man in flared trousers running.

At one point they said: "They are oldies but goodies."

Before them Richard Ashcroft played a memorable sunset show with the crowd swaying to to harmonious classic "Bitter Sweet Symphony".

Eccentric punk lord Iggy Pop whipped the crowd into a frenzy with a storming set prancing around bare-chested and at one point climbing to the front railings to high-five and shake hands with ecstatic fans.

The day also saw a heartfelt tribute to David Bowie who took to the Isle of Wight's main stage 12 years ago.

Five months after his death he was remembered on the same stage as thousands of festival goers donned masks of the singer's face.

]All the money raised by the sale of the masks went to Stand Up to Cancer, the festival's official charity partner.

The crowds were treated to Spandau Ballet's Gary Kemp and the Corrs' Andrea Corr performing Bowie's Starman to the crowd, a fitting way to remember his talent.

Away from the music, England's first Euro 2016 match against Russia.

The thrilling match saw thousands of fans roar with delight when England utilised a free kick to go one nil up. But they were left devastated when Russia equalised in the final moments.

The disappointed supporters were consoled by the fact The Who were performing shortly after the match ended.

Drum and bass kings Pendulum unleashed a powerful performance in the Big Top to round off the night there.

Earlier 1980s icon Adam Ant proved his showmanship performing in the Big Top.

He wore Naval regalia from a bygone era including a black hat with a feather in it and a dark blue and gold jacket - changing halfway through into a white jacket.

Meanwhile Southampton band the Lounge Kittens had got the party started on that stage with their style fusion of lounge, swing, rock and hip hop.

Tomorrow is the climax of a spectacular weekend with global superstars Queen playing out with Adam Lambert.

Meanwhile indie band Ocean Colour Scene are starring on the main stage, plus the Cribs and Mike and the Mechanics.

Feeder, the Wonder Stuff and Reef will be on the main stage.
