For the week ended January 21, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the title has now sold more than any sports game in the UK to date.

Ubisoft's Rayman Origins entered the charts, claiming the number nine spot thanks to a series of price promotions, and forcing Bethesda's Rage down to number ten.

Zumba Fitness continued to outsell its sequel Zumba Fitness 2, with the titles at numbers six and eight respectively.
