Madonna has gone to the top of the British singles chart, claiming the 13th UK number one of her career.

Her single 4 Minutes, featuring Justin Timberlake, knocked Estelle and Kanye West's American Boy into second place.

Madonna's number one, taken from her 11th album Hard Candy, comes 23 years after she first topped the UK chart.

On the album rundown, pop-rockers The Kooks went straight in at number one with their second album Konk, followed by Spirit by Leona Lewis at number two.
