Sir Elton John turned 76 at the weekend, and he clearly celebrated in style. One of the sweetest aspects of his party, though, was the behind-the-scenes glimpse of the sweet tribute his sons Zachary, 12, and Elijah, ten, created for their famous dad.

The legendary singer took to Instagram on Sunday to share some photos of the previous day's festivities. One of them showed red and gold helium balloons arranged to spell out: "Happy Birthday Daddy 76".

More balloons and illustrations could just be seen at the bottom of the picture. Elton gushed in the caption: "I absolutely loved my birthday! A magical day with @davidfurnish and our beautiful sons".

He continued: "From the most spectacular cake – the gift of 100 oak trees grown from acorns of the old tree that has been gracing my driveway for centuries, it was a real celebration.
