US Senator and former Presidential Candidate John McCain has died at the age of 81.

He had been battling brain cancer for a number of years.

Last week his family announced he would no longer be receiving treatment for the aggressive disease.

McCain was beaten in the race to the White House by Barack Obama in 2008.

Both Donald Trump and Barrack Obama have paid their respects to the late senator.
