Game of Thrones star Neil Fingleton, who was once declared Britain's tallest man, has died at the age of 36.

The actor, who grew up in County Durham, is reported to have tragically died of heart failure yesterday.

Standing at 7ft 7in, Neil Fingleton was declared the UK's tallest man in 2007, before moving to the USA to play basketball.

Here he is appearing in Game of Thrones...



Speaking about his height back in 2007, he said: "I've never been embarrassed about my height and I actually like the size I am. It's something unique and original. My group of friends are great and I come from a good family, so being tall hasn't ever been an issue. I've not been self-conscious."

RIP.
