Actor Andrew Garfield has described how he worked out for six hours a day for four months to prepare for his film role as comic book super-hero Spider-Man.

He was speaking at the UK premiere of the 3D movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, in London's Leicester Square.

The 28-year-old actor has taken on the role of teenager Peter Parker who becomes a web-slinging, wall-climbing hero after he is bitten by a radioactive spider.

He was asked if it was a daunting role to take on.
