Roger the ripped kangaroo, who sprang to fame when he crushed a metal bucket between his paws with a physique that's made many humans jealous, has died at a Northern Territory sanctuary.

The much-loved alpha kangaroo had millions of fans when he died from natural causes aged 12 at The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs.

"We have lost our beautiful boy," owner Chris Barns said.

"He lived a lovely long life and was loved by millions around the world."

"He's passed away very peacefully under his favorite witchetty bush where he liked to sleep to get out of the hot sun. It's a beautiful shady tree and we found him underneath that tree."

Sir Bobby Charlton, the Manchester United legend who was a key figure in England's 1966 World Cup victory, has died at the age of 86.

Charlton won 106 caps for England and scored 49 international goals - records for his country at the time.

During a 17-year first-team career with United he won three league titles, a European Cup and an FA Cup.

Charlton's family said he "passed peacefully in the early hours of Saturday morning".
