The closing ceremony of the Olympics has led to a number of resurging albums from artists who performed including Madness, whose Total Madness set jumps back on the chart at 13.

Others making big jumps include the Who, Queen, Pink Floyd and Annie Lennox.

The only new album by a veteran artist this week also benefits from an appearance at the Olympics. Ray Davies performed Waterloo Sunset during the closing ceremony and the new collection, Waterloo Sunset: The Best of the Kinks and Ray Davies enters the chart at number 14.
