American Justin Howard, known as ‘Nordic Thunder’ has won the 17th Air Guitar World Championships in Finland.
Eighteen contestants performed in front of a 5,000 strong crowd, ‘playing along’ to their favourite rock song.
Finalists from Japan, Britain, Russia and Czech Republic took part.
The winner, picked by judges and the audience, received a real guitar.
The show has been held in the northern city of Oulu since 1996.
