US composer Irving Burgie, who helped to popularise Caribbean music with hit songs like Day-O, has died aged 95.

His death was confirmed by Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who called for a moment of silence for the man who wrote its national anthem.

Mr Burgie is best known for helping singer Harry Belafonte bring calypso music to the mainstream.

The 1950s song Day-O went on to be used in films, adverts and even as a wake-up call for astronauts in space.

Tyrone Mings' first Premier League goal secured a draw for Aston Villa and prevented Manchester United moving into the top five for the first time since 14 September.

Mings thought he was offside when he volleyed home two minutes after Victor Lindelof had given United their 64th-minute lead.

But the assistant referee kept his flag down and VAR proved he was correct to do so as Villa avoided defeat at Old Trafford for the first time since 2009.
