Justin Timberlake took on the Super Bowl 52 half-time show with a performance than ran across his entire back catalogue and featured a tribute to Prince.

The annual NFL show was held in Minneapolis and was rumoured to be honouring Prince as it was his home town; at the mid-way point Justin performed Prince’s I Would Die 4 U, along with video footage of the late singer.

The cameras in the stadium also panned back during the song to reveal the surrounding city lights had been turned purple.
