India's most famous tiger, 19-year-old Machli, has died, officials say.

Known as the Queen of Ranthambore, Machli was described as one of the world's most photographed tigers. She had distinctive fish-shaped markings on the left side of her face.

She featured in many documentaries and amazed viewers when her fight with a 14-foot crocodile was caught on film.

She was one of the biggest draws for thousands of tourists visiting Ranthambore National Park,

India has more than half the world's tigers, at 2,226 in the latest estimate.
