The world's tallest Lego tower has been built in South Korea.

The tower, made up entirely of 50,000 toy bricks, measures in at 31.9 meters. It took 4,000 children five days to piece the giant creation together.

Built to celebrate Lego’s 80th birthday on 13 May, the multi-coloured tower broke the previous record set in France at 31.6 meters.

While a crane was on hand to fit the highest pieces in place, Prince Frederik of Denmark, who was on a six-day state visit of South Korea, placed the final brick on top.

It currently stands in front of Seoul's Olympic Stadium.
