Pop superstar Prince had no known will, his sister has said.

Tyka Nelson has filed paperwork to be appointed executor in state court in Minnesota.

The 57-year-old superstar was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park Studios compound in Minneapolis on Thursday. No cause of death has yet been released.

Ms Nelson, who is his only surviving full sibling, said in the documents that an emergency exists because immediate action is necessary to manage Prince's business interests.

He is believed to have left around $27 million (£18.5 million) in property and a spike in sales of his music since his death is likely to boost the wealth of his estate.

It is not known exactly how much Prince was worth when he died.
