Baggage handlers at London’s Heathrow Airport paid a unique tribute to Freddie Mercury on what would have been his 72nd birthday.

Staff at the airport teamed up with ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ for a special routine set to Queen’s iconic track ‘I Want To Break Free’ as they donned fake moustaches and hi-vis versions of the frontman’s famous yellow jacket for the stunt on Wednesday.

Before joining the legendary rock band in 1970, Freddie worked as a baggage handler at Heathrow, making the dance a fitting way of remembering the late star, who passed away in November 1991.
