On welcoming the Ukrainian team of athletes to the games, Mr Rutte said: "I am sure you are here with mixed feelings and great concern about what is happening back home.

"Some members of the Invictus community cannot be here as they are fighting on the front line.

"We are also thinking of those in the community who have paid the ultimate price.
