Marvin Hamlisch, who wrote the scores for films such as The Sting and A Chorus Line has died at the age of 68,

Marvin was an avid song-writer, penning many much-loved songs such as "Nobody Does It Better" and "I've Finally Found Someone" and died after a short illness, details of which have not been made public.

His illustrious career spanned several decades after he started as a rehearsal pianist, and his talent has been described as "pure genius". He worked on countless films, Broadway shows and with the best in the music industry, his favourite being Barbra Streisand who Marvin described as having "the best voice there is". They worked together on numerous projects, and he even sang at her wedding.

Ronald Reagan, former US President, said in a statement that Hamlisch was "a dear friend and I am truly stunned by his death at such a young age ... I don't think you could ever find a more contemporary and talented musician".

He will be sorely missed, and the world has lost another incredible musical force.
