Sir Rod Stewart has become the oldest male solo artist to have a number one album in the UK. reports citing BBC.

The British singer's 10th chart topper You're In My Heart was released on 22 November.

But it rose to the top spot this week in a close race - with a difference of just 750 in sales between Sir Rod, Robbie Williams and The Who.

Sir Rod, who is 74 years and 11 months old, has taken the accolade from American singer Paul Simon.

He beat Simon by three months, the Official Charts Company said.

But Sir Rod has a way to go to beat the oldest female to top the album charts. Dame Vera Lynn scored a number one in 2014 when she was 97 with the collection Vera Lynn: National Treasure.

Sir Rod said: "A new government and a new number one for Sir Rod. Thank you once again to my legions of fans who I will never take for granted.

"Bless you all and a Merry Christmas. Well done Robbie, well done Boris, no hard feelings Pete Townshend!"
