Jackson's sparkly glove is sold

Jackson's glove sells for thousands

A white glove once worn by Michael Jackson has been sold for just under £30,000 at an auction in Australia.

The singer threw the jewel-encrusted glove into the crowd, during a visit to Sydney in 1996.

Music collector Bill Hibble caught it, but the item has now been sold to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where it will go on display.

It's thought to be the first Michael Jackson glove to go on sale since he died on 25 June.
