Tributes are being paid to US actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero film, after he died on Friday aged 43.
Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016 but had never spoken about it publicly.
He died at his home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side.
The Black Panther, seen as a cultural milestone for having a largely black cast and a black director, being the first superhero film to get a nomination for best picture at the Oscars and his “Wakanda Forever” rallying cry inspiring a whole generation of young black men and women, with Boseman saying last year that the blockbuster had changed what it means to be “young, gifted and black”.
