(Classic Rock) In early June it was revealed that the cause of Prince's death was an accidental overdose of the powerful painkiller fentanyl, according to a document linked via a tweet by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office.

The Associated Press say that according to a one-page report released by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office, the music icon - who died aged 57 in April - administered the drug himself.

The Medical Examiner's Office also confirmed it had completed its investigation into the star's death but would give no further comment. Fentanyl is 50 times more potent than morphine and up to 25 times stronger than heroin (diamorphine). Read more here.
