Jackson's glove sells for thousands

One of Michael Jackson's sparkly white gloves has been sold at auction in Australia for around £30,000.

The glove, which was thrown at a fan during an Australian tour in the 1990s, is said to be the first to be auctioned since the singer died in June.

It was bought by Warwick Stone for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where the crystal-encrusted white glove will eventually go on display.
