The family of a climber from Wales in the United kingdom who was killed while shielding his wife from a rock fall in California have said, "he will always be our hero for saving her".

32-years-old Andrew Foster, originally from Cheltenham, died when rocks fell from El Capitan in Yosemite National Park on September 27.

His 28-years-old wife Lucy, who was seriously injured and is recovering in hospital, was protected by her husband's body.

Foster's family said they were so proud of their "brave boy".

In a statement, they said they wake up every morning hoping his death had been a "bad dream".

Foster proposed to his wife in the Alps in 2015 and the couple married last year.
