Ballroom dancing robot up for sale

This isn't the latest Doctor Who villain - it's one of the world's earliest humanoid robots!

Gygan was revealed back in 1957 by an Italian engineer. The robot was remote controlled and could walk, crush cans and even ballroom dance!

Gygan is now up for auction and could raise over £12,000.
