Final resting place of Suleiman's heart

The search for a 450-year-old heart and its golden box has led researchers to a small town in south-west Hungary.

The organ belonged to Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent who died in 1566 - his body was taken to the imperial capital, Constantinople, but his heart remained in Hungary.

Drone footage from Turbek shows what is thought to be the burial site.
