Freddie Mercury’s haunting final photo before tragic death

Queen legend Freddie Mercury tragically died after battling Aids.

The star was just 45 when he sadly passed away and kept his illness a secret until 24 hours before he died on November 24 1991.

He released a statement revealing he was HIV+ just a day before he died from the illness.

His final days remain a mystery, nearly three decades later.

Speculation of his deteriorating health was sparked after Queen had to halt their 1987 Magic Tour before it ended.

Freddie gradually became more private in his final few years, preferring to say in Garden Lodge home in west London's Kensington than rub shoulders with other celebrities at showbiz parties.

The legendary singer's health continued to worsen in private, and on September 3 1991, he was spotted outside his house looking incredibly thin in his final picture.
