London is the selfie capital of the world, according to social media analysis.

More than 14% of selfies were found to be captured in the capital.

Big Ben, the London Eye, and Buckingham Palace proved to be popular selfie destinations in research which involved analysis of 6.3 million social media messages from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere by Suggestme.com.

New York and Amsterdam are in second and third place, with Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Rijksmuseum, and the Van Gogh Museum being the places in those cities where the most selfies are taken, the website said.

Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Sydney, Istanbul, and Athens all feature in the top 10.

The Colosseum in Rome was the most popular selfie backdrop overall.
