Avicii has been described as one of the "true global superstars".

The Swedish DJ and producer passed away yesterday aged 28.

He stopped performing live in 2016 for health reasons but the cause of his death isn't yet known.

Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, topped the charts around the world with hits including Levels, Wake Me Up and Hey Brother.

Tributes have been pouring in online: 

An ex-girlfriend of the late Avicii has taken to social media to pay her respects.

Emily Goldberg, who dated the 28 year old between 2011 and 2013, shared text messages and photos on Instagram.

In a statement quoted by Billboard, the DJ's publicist Diana Baron said: "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

"The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time.

"No further statements will be given."
