Original or not, somebody bought probably the most iconic Bruce Lee item ever for $100,000! Very exciting!

The yellow jumpsuit worn by martial arts film star Bruce Lee in his final film has sold for $100,000 (£61,000) at an auction in Hong Kong.

The polyester black-striped garment still has a zip damaged in a fight scene (Ji Han Jae), auction house Spink said.

Lee died in 1973, aged 32, before final film Game of Death was completed.

The jumpsuit, which made three times its estimate, was part of a collection of Lee memorabilia which fetched $258,000 (£157,000).

Other items that were snapped up included the star's nunchaku - a pair of wooden lacquered sticks connected by a length of cord - one of the prop weapons used by Lee in his final screen outing.

They were designed to match his yellow jumpsuit.

British collector George Phillips successfully bid $70,000 (£42,700) for the nunchaku, calling it an "iconic item".

A green bamboo stick used by the star was another item of martial arts weaponry which sold at the auction.

The yellow suit with black stripes down the sides went to an unidentified telephone bidder at Spink auction house's Thursday night sale.

It was part of a collection of 14 items of Bruce Lee memorabilia that raised more than 2 million Hong Kong dollars or $258,000.

All I can say is congratulations. After all these years I didn't know Taky Kimura had that suit all this time! Very excited to read about stuff like this. I am surprised that it shrunk so much especially if it was made out of polyester.

I havent watched the GOD scenes in a long time, but I dont think Lee used wooden nunchucks during filming. In a couple of scenes, I believe in Fist of Fury, you can see them bend as if they are of a foam like material. You could also really hurt someone with an accidental hit using wooden ones. I will have to watch those scenes again. I dont think Dans red ones were wooden either.
