Bob Hoskins has died at 71 after a bout of pneumonia.

The British actor had a highly successful career spanning four decades before retiring in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

In a statement, his wife Linda and children, Alex, Sarah, Rosa and Jack, said: “We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob. Bob died peacefully in hospital last night, surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time and thank you for your messages of love and support.”

RIP Bob, and thanks for all the laughs.
