Barry will also sing a spine-tingling version of the national anthem ahead of the tournament finals on Sunday 25th May.

I'm of African/English/German/Indonesian descent. I spent my childhood in South Africa, then began my teenage years in Auckland, New Zealand, when my parents decided we'd move there for a better quality of life.”
