Greek singer Demis Roussos, who became popular in the 1960s and 1970s, has died in an Athens hospital at the age of 68.
The Egyptian-born singer had been in the private hospital with an undisclosed illness for some time.
Roussos sold around 60 million records worldwide and saw success when he joined the progressive rock band Aphrodite's Child in 1967.
He had solo hits with Forever And Ever, Mr Reason and Goodbye My Love, Goodbye.
Artemios "Demis" Ventouris Roussos was born and raised in Alexandria, Egypt before his parents moved to Greece during the Suez Crisis.
He began his music career aged 17 with a band called The Idols where he met his future Aphrodite's Child bandmates.
Roussos is the subject of an argument between two characters in Mike Leigh's TV play Abigail's Party.
He made one of his earliest appearances on English-language TV on the Basil Brush Show.
The star struggled with his weight for a long time and co-wrote a book about obesity.
He recorded and toured until 2009, when his last album came out.
One of his last public appearances was in the Athens in 2013, when he received a French Legion of Honour medal for his life's work.
But it was his glowering face on 1970s and 1980s album covers that provided the most enduring image of the singer: a theatrical figure with unusual outfits, a flowing dark beard and long hair thinning on top.
