    Colombian couples are queuing to touch the nipples of a statue in the hope it will help their relationships.

    The sculpture, in the city of Cartagena, is of a curvaceous woman who locals have named Getrudis.

    They believe that Getrudis will bless them with long and happy relationships if they touch her nipples.

    Artist Fernando Botero, who created the sculpture four years ago, said he was surprised and delighted by the custom.

    He told RCN Radio Station: "I think it is great that loads of tourists and locals line up to touch the sculpture's breasts.
