Superstar Prince has died at the age of 57, a week after being hospitalised with the flu…

Police were called to his Paisley Park estate early on Thursday morning, after reports of a man’s body being found in a lift.

He became a superstar globally in the 1980s, with people citing Purple Rain as his most popular song.

His death has not yet been confirmed, but a post mortem has been scheduled to take place today.

Prince’s spokeswoman confirmed the news:

It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died.

Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson has said that his deputies responded to a call on Thursday at 09:43, where they found Prince’s unresponsive body in a lift. They tried to revive him with CPR, but he was pronounced dead at 10:07.
