Classic Queen tune Bohemian Rhapsody has been crowned Britain’s greatest number one single ever in a new poll.
The song beat out offerings by Oasis, Kylie Minogue and Madonna to scoop the BBC Radio 1 honour yesterday following weeks of voting.
The survey was conducted to celebrate the 1,000th number one UK hit, which was achieved posthumously by Elvis Presley on 16 January.
