A music fan has paid $2m (£1.2m) for a handwritten draft of Bob Dylan's classic, Like a Rolling Stone, at Sotheby's in New York.

The song was immortalised on headed hotel paper from the Roger Smith Hotel in Washington DC.

Recorded by Dylan in 1965 when he was 24, it was the track that took the acoustic folk singer electric.
