Blues legend BB King has died in Las Vegas at the age of 89, his lawyer says.

The 89-year-old guitarist recently returned home after a short stay in hospital, where he was treated for high blood pressure and diabetes.

It was the second time in a month that King, who has lived with diabetes for more than 20 years, had been admitted to hospital.

He cancelled the final shows of his 2014 tour last October after falling ill in Chicago.

With more than 50 albums under his belt, King is known for hits such as 1952′s Three O’Clock Blues, The Thrill Is Gone in 1970 and the 1989 duet When Love Comes to Town with Irish rockers U2.

Born in Mississippi as Riley B King, the musician was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
