The first foal of legendary racehorse Frankel has been sold at auction in central London for £1.15m.

The three-month-old unnamed colt was sold together with his dam, Crystal Gaze, who is expecting her second foal from Frankel next year.

Frankel is rated the best horse ever on the Flat and was retired to stud in 2012 after winning all 14 of his races.

Katherine Downes reports from Kensington Palace.
