    Pop superstar George Michael dies of suspected heart failure aged 53

    Police say they are treating Michael's death as "unexplained but not suspicious", as his manager says it was due to heart failure.

    Pop superstar George Michael has died of suspected heart failure at the age of 53.

    Michael, who shot to fame as the front man of Wham! in the 1980s, died peacefully at his home in Oxfordshire, his publicist said.

    His manager Michael Lippman said the cause of his death was heart failure, according to the Associated Press.

    Thames Valley Police said officers were called to a property in Goring-on-Thames shortly before 2pm on Christmas Day.

    The force said: "Sadly, a 53-year-old man was confirmed deceased at the scene.

    "At this stage the death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.

    "A post-mortem will be undertaken in due course."

    Michael's publicist said: "It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period.

    "The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time."

    Michael - whose real name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou - had hits including Club Tropicana and Last Christmas as a part of Wham!

    He sold more than 100 million albums throughout a career spanning almost four decades.

    People reacted with shock on social media, with his former Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley leading tributes.

    He tweeted: "Heartbroken at the loss of my beloved friend Yog. Me, his loved ones, his friends, the world of music, the world at large. 4ever loved. A xx"

    Sir Elton John said he was "in deep shock" at Michael's death.

    The pair famously collaborated on a rendition of Elton's classic Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me, released in 1992.

    Writing on Instagram, Sir Elton said: "I have lost a beloved friend - the kindest, most generous soul and a brilliant artist.

    "My heart goes out to his family and all of his fans."

    "All our love and sympathy to @GeorgeMichael's family."

    Heartbroken at the loss of my beloved friend Yog. Me, his loved ones, his friends, the world of music, the world at large. 4ever loved. A xx https://t.co/OlGTm4D9O6

    As well as being known for his musical talent, Michael had a turbulent personal life, and brushes with the law and tales of drug use saw him hit the headlines.

    Michael nearly died from pneumonia in late 2011.

    He received treatment in a Vienna hospital, after which he made a tearful appearance outside his London home and said it had been "touch and go" whether he lived.

    Behind the headlines, Michael quietly gave huge sums to charity, including all the royalties from the 1996 number one Jesus to a Child.

    Childline founder Dame Esther Rantzen said he had given "millions" and "no-one outside the charity knew how much he given the nation's most vulnerable children".

    Michael's 1990 album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 had been set to be reissued.

    It was due to be accompanied by a new film featuring Stevie Wonder, Elton John and the supermodels who starred in the video to his hit single Freedom! '90.

    R. I. P George Michael.

    That is a bit disrespectful Maurice.

    Great singer but a silly man who did well to last as long as he did given his health and emotional problems.

    I am sure drugs and alcohol played a major part in his death, as I say, a silly man.

    The partner of pop superstar George Michael has described how he found the star dead in bed on Christmas Day.

    Fadi Fawaz said he made the terrible discovery after arriving at the musician's home to wake him ahead of a planned Christmas Day lunch.

    Its a Xmas I will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.. I will never stop missing you xx

    Mr Fawaz revealed his devastation as it emerged that Michael had been a secret donor to many charities, giving millions of pounds.

    The man with a reputation for self-indulgence donated to charities involved with helping children, cancer victims and AIDS sufferers.

    He was also remembered for other acts of kindness - volunteering at a homeless shelter and giving a stranger money for IVF treatment after seeing her on Deal or No Deal.

    George Michael worked anonymously at a homeless shelter I was volunteering at. I've never told anyone, he asked we didn't. That's who he was.

    Childline founder Esther Rantzen said Michael gave royalties from his 1996 hit Jesus To A Child to the charity.

    "Over the years he gave us millions," She said Michael was determined no-one outside the charity should know how much he gave to the nation's most vulnerable children.

    His death came in a year which has seen the music industry lose some of its biggest stars including Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Greg Lake and Rick Parfitt, such a galaxy of stars.
