Baku, October 6, AZETAC

Spanish singer Montserrat Caballé has died at the age of 85, according to Euronews.

The soprano received international acclaim during an operatic career spanning 50 years.

But she reached a new audience in 1987, recording a single with Queen frontman Freddy Mercury, which was featured in the 1992 Summer Olympics.

Caballé suffered a stroke in 2012 and had been hospitalised in Barcelona since last month.

Her funeral is expected to take place on Monday (October 8).
