Hollywood star Sidney Poitier, the first Black person to win an Oscar for best actor, has died at the age of 94.


Among the tributes, former US President Barack Obama said he had "epitomised dignity and grace".

Poitier's ground-breaking career won him an Academy Award in 1964 for Lilies of the Field - and he became known for roles which challenged racial prejudice and championed social progress.
