The world’s most fit countries have been worked out by scientists -- using mobile phone data.

Researchers looked at how many steps 700,000 people from around the globe took, using 68 million days worth of information to break down minute-by-minute findings.

Hong Kong came out on top, with an average of 6,880 per day -- the equivalent to around 6 kilometers. Korean walk 5,755, ranked 8th.
