Juliette Gréco: Doyenne of French singers dies at 93

A true icon of the French chanson, Juliette Gréco, has died aged 93 after a fabled career that spanned eight decades.

Born in 1927, Gréco was imprisoned by the Nazis during World War Two, but afterwards began performing in cellar clubs and cafes.

Dressed in black, she became a muse to philosophers and writers including Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus.

She only stopped performing aged 89 after a farewell tour.

Gréco was also a celebrated actor, working with some of cinema's greats, such as Jean Cocteau and Ingrid Bergman, Orson Welles and Ava Gardner.
