Abba Gold reaches record-breaking 1,000 weeks in UK album chart

Released in 1992, the record is the second biggest-seller of all time in the UK with sales of 5.61 million, only behind Queen's Greatest Hits.

Featuring the Swedish band's biggest songs Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia and Waterloo, it has now spent a total of 19 years and 12 weeks in the top 100.

"Not bad for four old turnips," joked Benny Andersson on hearing the news.

Abba Gold has spent eight weeks at number one over the years, and is currently at number 17.
