Duran Duran star Simon Le Bon is mourning the death of his close pal, Swedish sailing icon Magnus Olsson, following his death on Saturday (20Apr13).

The 64 year old, famed for his participation in the offshore Volvo Ocean Race, passed away in Spain after suffering a stroke and Le Bon has been left heartbroken by the sad news.

In a series of Twitter.com posts on Monday (22Apr13), the singer reveals he will always regret not visiting his ailing friend one last time, but will always remember his famous smile.

He writes, "I've been putting off writing this all day. My good friend and shipmate Magnus Olsson died on the weekend.

"I am terribly sad that I didn't get to see him and spend one more evening in the glow of that smile. That smile, and the laughter which warmed your heart when all around, everything seemed damp and cold. Goodbye dear friend."
