In a fitting tribute, a fan has rebuilt Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson's $70m mansion within the very game that made him so wealthy.

The mansion -- bought just a few days ago -- is widely regarded as the most-expensive property in Beverly Hills after Persson secured IT following a reported bidding war with Beyonce and Jay Z.

Of course while the Minecraft version is lacking a few of the more extreme features -- a replica of Steve McQueen's motorcycle -- all the essential elements are there from the underground car park to the infinity pool at the back.

Persson revealed that he'd bought the mansion after he tweeted a picture of himself with his feet up in the living room.
