Cast your mind back to the 2003 Rugby World Cup and have a look at this monster tackle from former NFL player Dave Hodges against his poor Japanese opponent.

San Francisco - British rock band Coldplay will be the headline act performing at Super Bowl 50 in February in San Jose, California, the National Football League has announced.

The four-man group is expected to join several other international artists for the annual entertainment extravaganza on February 7 at Levi's Stadium. Coldplay has a new album coming out Friday called, "A Head Full of Dreams."

Returning to the Super Bowl stage again will be Bruno Mars, who performed with the Red Hot Chili Peppers at half-time of last season's Super Bowl.

The US media said talks are also being held to bring Beyonce into the half-time show. She worked with Coldplay on their new album.

Coldplay have sold more than 80 million records worldwide. 

Their music awards include seven Grammy awards out of 25 nominations, eight Brit Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, and winning Best British Group three times.
