Former Pakistani cricketer and politician Imran Khan has tweeted of his shock and sadness following the death of Mark Shand:

The Duchess of Cornwall is "utterly devastated" after her brother died from a serious head injury sustained in a fall in New York.
Mark Shand, 62, was taken to hospital on Tuesday night after reportedly slipping while lighting a cigarette and hitting his head on the pavement outside an after-party for a charity event.
He was in New York for an auction held at Sotheby's in aid of a charity for underprivileged children and the Elephant Family, which aims to save the endangered Asian elephant from extinction in the wild.
It was the finale for the month-long Big Egg Hunt NYC by Faberge, which saw egg sculptures, designed by well-known faces, sold to the highest bidder. The charity event raised $1.6 million (£950,000) for charity.
The Russian aircraft that were 'intercepted' by RAF Typhoon jets earlier today remained in international airspace, the Ministry of Defence has said.
"The aircraft were subsequently identified as Russian military aircraft. The Russian military aircraft remained in international airspace at all times as they are perfectly entitled to do so." A spokesman for the MoD said.
"Russian military flights have never entered UK sovereign airspace without authorisation."
