Larry Hagman, who spent more than a decade playing TV villain JR Ewing has died at the age of 81, his family says.

Hagman, who had suffered from cancer and cirrhosis of the liver, died in hospital on Friday afternoon, according to a family statement.

Long-time friend Michael Preece, who directed over 60 episodes of Dallas, told BBC News that Hagman did not need directing in his role as JR.
