COMIC Rik Mayall's 2010 Word Cup song Noble England has gone straight into the top 10 of the singles chart.

The track, originally recorded for the last World Cup, failed to chart first time around, but thanks to a social media campaign it has gone in at number seven.

Mayall, 56, died last Monday. His wife said she had received "thousands and thousands of messages of condolence" from around the world.
