Elvis's 80th Birthday celebrated at Graceland

Friends, family and fans of Elvis Presley celebrated what would have been his 80th birthday at his Graceland home on Thursday.

The King of Rock 'n' Roll was honoured with a giant cake, cut by his former wife Priscilla and his daughter Lisa Marie as the crowd sang Happy Birthday.

Presley died aged 42 in 1977, but fans from all over the world still pay homage to him with visits to his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee.
