Paris has come out tops as the 'healthiest city in the world' - in one study at least.

The TravelSupermarket study ranks cities by factors such as the number of parks, gyms, spas, yoga studios, health food shops and vegan option restaurants in a city.

Next on the index is Thailand's Chiang Mai, followed by Barcelona in Spain.

Auckland is 89th on the list.

UK correspondent Gavin Grey told Tim Dower France's capital taking the cake comes as a surprise.

"Many people will be shocked at this, with Paris having big smell and air pollution problems."
