Lewis Hamilton has paid an emotional tribute to tragic Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman after the star's death, aged 43.
Boseman passed away after a secret four-year battle with colon cancer after being diagnosed with the illness in 2016.
F1 great Hamilton took to social media to add his tributes to the thousands of messages pouring in.
He posted: "I woke up today to the sad news, our super hero passed away. I’m so grateful I got to meet you brother.
"Thank you for all you have done for us. Rest in Power, you were the best of us and will never be forgotten. Love, light and prayers I send to you and your family."
The news of Boseman's death was confirmed in a statement posted on Instagram late on Friday in the US, which read: "It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
"Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much.
"From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
"It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
"He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
"The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time."
