Tributes have been paid from around the world to the “extraordinary artist” whose last album was released days ago. Sir Paul McCartney described him as a “great star” who “played a very strong part in British musical history”.

Bowie’s son Duncan Jones wrote on Twitter: “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all.”
