This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
After such an incredible journey for so many athletes and spectators alike, what better way to celebrate the 2012 Summer Olympics in London coming to a close than with the ORIGINAL fab five?!
That is RIGHT, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, and Melanie Chisholm reunited as the SPICE GIRLS this evening to perform at the Closing Ceremony, and as to be expected, it was filled with glamor, ferocity, and GIRL POWER!
Ch-ch-check 'em performing Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life from atop the roofs of English taxi cabs (above)!
Well done, ladies!
Nobody does it like you do, and we couldn't ask more anything MORE!
Well…except for another possible reunion tour!
Maybe?! Please?! LOLz!
