Prime Minister Narendra Modi was greeted as a celebrity by tens of thousands of supporters waving Indian flags and Union Jacks during a high-energy rally at London’s Wembley Stadium - more usually home to rock concerts and England’s national soccer team.

He was introduced onstage by Prime Minister David Cameron, who has often been by Modi’s side on the trip, a sign of how important Britain considers the visit.

Around 60,000 people cheered when Cameron said, “it won’t be long before there’s a British Indian prime minister in Downing Street.”

Here are some pics from the rally.
