Roxette's Marie Fredriksson

Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has died aged 61, her manager has confirmed.

The Swedish star has been battling cancer for 17 years and her management team said she died on Monday morning. I'm honoured to have met your talent+generosity. "Things will never be the same".

Fredriksson was first diagnosed with a severe brain tumour in 2002 and underwent an aggressive period of treatment that saw her fight back onto the stage by 2009.

Swedish pop star Marie Fredriksson, whose most iconic hit was It Must Have Been Love, had reportedly been battling a long illness. It's not that long ago we spent days+nights in my tiny apartment sharing impossible dreams. And what a dream we eventually got to share.

The band stopped touring in 2016 after 30 years, citing Fredriksson's health.
