Robbie Williams has been named music's greatest superstar of all time.
The 'Angels' singer - who hasn't released a song since 2007 - topped a poll by MTV, beating his former bandmates Take That and the late 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson, proving he still has a strong following.
A source said: "This proves that Robbie is still a superstar in many people's minds."
Other acts in the top 10 include 'Mr Brightside' hitmakers The Killers, British girl band Girls Aloud and dance act The Prodigy.
Beyonce Knowles, sexy girl group Pussycat Dolls and rockers Oasis also made the poll.
The news comes at a great time for Robbie as he launches his comeback, with his new album 'Reality Killed the Video Star' being released later this year.
It was recently revealed Calvin Harris is desperate to work with Robbie.
The 'I'm Not Alone' hitmaker - who has previously collaborated with Dizzee Rascal and Kylie Minogue - says the 'Rock DJ' star is top of the list of artists he hopes to team-up with on his next record.
He said: "I want to work with Robbie, he's my number one target now.
"I think he's just finished his new album with producer Trevor Horn though. Maybe he can come and help on my next record instead."
