The veteran singer, most famous for the song 'Moon River', has died a year after he was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Robbie Williams has paid tribute to Andy Williams, the veteran singer who has died at the age of 84.

Andy Williams, who had been battling bladder cancer for the past year, was best known for his Oscar-winning version of 'Moon River', which featured in the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's and rendition of 'Music To Watch Girls Go By'.

He was also the star of the three-time Emmy-award winning programme, The Andy Williams Show, and founder of the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in his home town.

In a message on his Twitter page, Robbie wrote: "God bless Andy Williams. RW x."

While his peers will most remember him for 'Moon River', Andy Williams' version of 'Music To Watch Girls Go By' became a surprise hit in 1999 after it was used in an advert.

He is survived by his wife, Debbie, and his three children, Robert, Noelle and Christian.
