London: R&B star Rihanna and rockers Coldplay are set to close the London 2012 Paralympic Games in style next month by teaming up for a special performance.

The `Umbrella` hitmaker Rihanna will perform a number of her own tracks before taking to the stage with Coldplay to perform their collaboration `Princess Of China` to mark the end of the sporting event, reported Daily Star online.

"All the Closing Ceremony details are top secret but Rihanna has already started rehearsing. As soon as Coldplay signed up she was the obvious choice to accompany them on stage," a source said.

"Organisers behind the grand finale have decided on a theme of the elements - earth, wind, water, fire and ice," the source added.
