Brazil builds world's tallest Lego tower

After four days of hard work Brazil is celebrating building the world's tallest Lego Tower.

Standing at 102ft, it broke the previous record set by Chile in 2008 by 9.8ins, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Nearly 6,000 Lego lovers in Sao Paulo, mostly children, helped put together independent blocks of Lego bricks which were later stacked using a crane.

The tower was composed of 500,000 Lego pieces and was held in place by wire supports to prevent it from toppling over in the wind.
Brazilian footballer Cafu placed the last block on the tower, which was built in the parking lot of a shopping centre in Sao Paulo.

Lego sent designers from Denmark for the world record attempt.

The first Lego tower was built in London in 1988, since then Toronto, Moscow, Sydney, Tokyo and Munich have been among the 53 cities to have held the title.
