Actor Jackie Chan has said the death of Robin Williams is like "losing a best friend."

The star, in London for a screening of new film Chinese Zodiac, said: "I just don't believe it. It seems like I've lost a best friend. I think everybody feels the same thing."

He added the Hook actor was "one of a kind" and recalled meeting him at the Oscars where he admitted his "mind went blank" when Williams spoke to him.

Afterwards Chan asked Williams' office if he could have his autograph. He said: "He sent it to me. I was so happy. It's now in my office when I walk in."
