The enigmatic musician known simply as Prince, has died age 57.

Following a brief health scare six days ago, which saw the star rushed from his private plane with "severe flu", the Purple Rain hitmaker went on to perform at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta. It was the second of two back to back sold out shows and he appeared fine during the concert.

Initial reports stated that "a middle-aged man" had died at the Paisley Park Studios where paramedics were called out to the music icon's estate at 9.43am. Carver County Sheriff's Department confirmed that there had been a fatality but no names were released at the time.

A publicist has since confirmed that Prince has died.
