Liu Xiaobo, a Nobel Peace Prize-winning Chinese opposition figure has died at the age of 61, according to reports on Chinese media.

Liu spent more than a decade behind bars in China for his advocacy of democracy, including taking part in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests.

He was granted medical parole in June 2017 after being diagnosed with liver cancer in prison. The Beijing government refused to let him seek treatment overseas, despite Liu's wishes and international pressure.
