Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro dies aged 90: Brother Raul announces former Cuban president's death on state television just months after he said he 'would die soon' 

Fidel Castro dead aged 90, Cuba’s former president

Fidel Castro, who led his native Cuba for nearly half a century and claimed to have survived more than 600 assassination attempts, has died at the age of 90.His younger brother, Raul Castro, announced on state television that the Communist revolutionary died on Friday night. World leaders have paid tribute to the revolutionary, who came to power in 1959, with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev praising him for 'strengthening' his island nation. Russian President Vladimir Putin described him as a 'symbol of an era', and said he was a 'distinguished statesman'. Nine days of public mourning for the deceased Cuban leader have been announced, when 'public activities and shows' will cease, and flags will fly at half mast. The news was met with shock in Cuban capital Havana, but Castro's death was celebrated by exiles in the US (inset), where a Cuban-American US Congress representative branded the late leader 'a tyrant'. The controversial leader made his last official appearance before the country's Communist party in April and predicted that his death was near. Castro (pictured right with revolutionary icon Ernesto 'Che' Guevara in the early 1960s) was 32 when he overthrew dictator Fulgencio Batista's government in 1959. The US severed diplomatic ties in 1961, banning all exports to Cuba except for food and medicine. Castro's brother Raul and President Obama moved to restore diplomatic ties in December 2014.

Gene Wilder (left with his wife, Karen, last year, and top right, at high school) died yesterday holding hands with his loved ones while listening to one of his favorite songs - which came on by chance as he took his last breath. The much-loved Willy Wonka actor (bottom right) was surrounded by his family at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, when he died yesterday. His nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, revealed the touching final hours of Wilder's life, in which the family gathered round for Wilder's favorite meal - a chicken dinner. The legendary comic actor, 83, lost his battle with Alzheimer's disease yesterday, a battle he kept secret because he 'couldn't bear the thought of one less smile in the world'. Stars including Mel Brooks, Jim Carrey and Russell Crowe paid tribute to the Blazing Saddles actor last night.

Muhammad Ali, boxing legend and global icon, dead at 74

Muhammad Ali, who rose above poverty and racism to become not only the heavyweight champion but a verse-spouting symbol of religious conviction and the most famous athlete in the world, died Friday at an Arizona hospital.

Ali was 74. The cause of death was complications from Parkinson’s disease, which he suffered from for more than 30 years. He died surrounded by family at Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center.

Muhammad Ali's only natural son hadn't spoken to his father for two YEARS

Muhammad Ali Jr (left), who had been living on the poverty line for the last decade in Chicago, hadn't seen his father in two years and admitted that he didn't even care what happened to him. Muhammad Ali, the self-proclaimed greatest boxer of all time, died aged 74 after a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease. In his last interview just before his father died two months ago, Ali Jr (pictured with his father top and bottom right) admitted that he didn't care what happened to his father because it was like 'not having one' and he's been looking after his grandfather from his mother's side, who ironically also has Parkinson's.

She's gone to join the Lord: Televangelist Jan Crouch who founded the world's largest 'prosperity praying' church and was famous for her purple hairdo and extravagant spending dies aged 78

She's gone to join the Lord: Televangelist Jan Crouch who founded the world's largest

Jan Crouch, known on her Trinity Broadcast Network as Momma Jan, suffered a massive stroke at home in Orlando, Florida, on March 26 before dying yesterday in hospital, according to her family. The Couches became notorious for their brand of 'prosperity praying', in which they promised viewers they would be rewarded by God if they opened their own wallets and donated to them. In recent years they were accused of misusing tens of millions of dollars of donor money to buy lavish mansions, luxury jets, a theme park, and even a $100,000 mobile home just for Janice's dogs.
