Barack Obama and Joe Biden surprised athletes on the penultimate day of the Invictus Games in Toronto, joining Prince Harry to enjoy a game of wheelchair basketball.

"At the summit of a mountain many of you thought was too high to climb".

Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams and Kelly Clarkson were among the acts to perform at the closing ceremony.

"This is the moment, right here, right now, shoulder to shoulder, you are Invictus".

"The legacy for me for Invictus is these individuals that have impressed me and impressed anybody who's been a part of the military family", Prince Harry said.

This is the third edition of the annual competition with previous stops in London, England and Orlando, respectively.
