Elvis Presley has broken the record for the most number one albums by a solo artist, after reaching the top spot for the 13th time.

The Wonder Of You sold 63,500 copies when it was released last week, marking another chart-topping album for the king of rock and roll, overtaking Madonna's 12.

Created almost 40 years after his death, the album is a second collection of orchestral re-workings of some of his best-loved hits by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Presley's former wife, Priscilla Presley, told OfficialCharts.com: "This achievement is something I know Elvis would have been so thankful for."
