Michael Jackson's iconic crystal studded glove has sold at a US auction for $190,000 (£126,000).

The sequined glove, which the late star wore during his 1984 'Victory' tour, was among over 200 pieces of memorabilia that went under the hammer at the Planet Hollywood casino in Las Vegas, raising just under $1m (£664,055) in total.

Some items were auctioned for more than 10 times their estimated value, including Jackson's loafers – the shoes, which he wore on stage, were expected to fetch between $2,000 (£1,328) and $3,000 (£1,990), but went for $90,000 (£59,764), reports ABC News.

One of his jackets also went for $120,000 (£79,686), even though it was estimated between $6,000 (£3,984) and $8,000 (£5,312).

A host of items belonging to Elvis Presley, Prince, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix were also sold, including Hendrix's Fender guitar which went for $180,000 (£119,500).

The auction was held to mark the anniversary of Jackson's death a year ago on Friday (June 25).
