  George Michael tops album charts

George Michael, who recently called an end to his recording career, has topped the album charts with Patience.

Earlier this month, the star announced he would never make another album for sale in record shops because he neither needs the cash nor wants the attention.

The 40-year-old singer, who knocked Katie Melua off the top spot, plans to release future tracks online.

Guns N' Roses' Greatest Hits joined the album charts at number two, while R&B star Usher topped the singles charts.
