The world-renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

He was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular books including A Brief History of Time.

At 22 he was given only a few years to live, after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

He told reporters in 2013 his lifestyle hadn't been curbed.
