A collection of love letters written by singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen to his lover and muse Marianne Ihlen have sold at auction for $876,000 (£692,190).

Many items from the archive sold for more than five times their pre-sale estimates, according to Christie's.

One letter, expected to fetch $10,000 (£7,900), went for $56,250 (£44,445).

The top lot in the five-day online auction was an Italian bronze bell that hung in the home Cohen and Ihlen once shared on the Greek island of Hydra.

A new documentary about the couple - Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love - is released in the UK on 26 July.
