Hometown heroes Tame Impala have picked up the coveted BRIT Award this morning for Best International Group, facing up against strong competition like Major Lazer and U2.

As The Mirror reports, the Perth rockers accepted their award at London's O2 Arena with "It's already amazing to be invited, let alone be given an award to accept."

The band, with their critically-acclaimed latest record Currents, were up against Grammy-winning Alabama Shakes, Major Lazer, Eagles Of Death Metal and U2.
