Music from David Bowie, who died in 2016 after a secret cancer diagnosis, will now be available for TikTok users to incorporate into their videos.

TikTok said in a statement: "A pioneer in music and fashion, David was - and remains - a cultural icon. He was never afraid to push boundaries and was always first to embrace new technology to reach his global fan base."

An account in Bowie's name has also launched on the app, in partnership with the David Bowie estate, Warner Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment.

This features videos from his memorable career.
