Bohemian Rhapsody has become a box office smash around the world.

The biopic scored the second-highest ever box office opening for a music film, behind N.W.A film Straight Outta Compton.

The film took $50 million (£38.3 million) in its opening week in North America and its international figures amassed to $72 million (£55.2 million).

Watch Rami Malek and Gwilym Lee take the ultimate Queen quiz:

Rami Malek also told Radio X what the Bohemian Rhapsody single means to him.

He told Radio X's John Robins: “When I first listened to it, I had this sense of, wow, music is so much more than I every thought it could be. Hearing that song made me think about art in that way - there was no limit or parameter to what we could do creatively. I think that was a very powerful lesson to learn as a young person.”

The US actor also revealed that he didn't "want to let Freddie down".
