INTERNATIONAL NEWS - Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has died aged 61, her manager has confirmed.
The Swedish star achieved global success in the 1990s with hits like Joyride, The Look and It Must Have Been Love.
A statement said Fredriksson had died on Monday, 9 December "following a 17-year long battle with cancer".
Fredriksson was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2002, after collapsing in her kitchen following a workout.
The tumour cost her the vision in her right eye - but after three years of treatment, she returned to public life and toured successfully again with Roxette from 2008 to 2016.
However, the cancer eventually returned: Fredriksson's family said she had died following a recurrence of "her previous illness" earlier this week.
