Heading into the weekend, Queen took their fans on a unique and remarkable journey with the latest episode of their 'The Greatest' YouTube series.

Continuing weekly through to March 2022 in chronological order, the latest offering explored the story behind one of the group's most enduring classics; 'We Are the Champions.'

Kicking off in March this year, each weekly episode promises to tell the story of Queen from its early days at London's Rainbow Theatre and Hammersmith Odeon with Freddie Mercury to the present day at vast arenas around the world with Adam Lambert.

"The Queen story is unlike any other," says series producer and creator Simon Lupton.

He continues: "I hope fans from all around the world will enjoy celebrating the many extraordinary achievements, timeless songs, and iconic performances that Freddie, Brian, Roger and John have given us.

"While we will be revisiting some of their most famous and legendary milestones, I'm hoping there will also be some surprises along the way to excite people whether they be die-hard fans or curious newcomers. This story has so many chapters to explore, and who knows... there could well be some new ones over the course of the next 50 weeks!"
