Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr Spock in Star Trek, has died at the age of 83.

His son Adam confirmed the actor, adored by Trekkies all over the world, died at his home in Los Angeles this morning.

He said the cause of his father’s death was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Nimoy, who appeared in Star Trek from 1966-1969, was loved by fans of the cult TV series for his portrayal of the pointy-eared science officer Mr Spock.

The actor left a poignant last message for fans on his Twitter account last Sunday, including a reference to his famous sign-off, “Live Long And Prosper”.

The tweet said: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”
