Hundreds of fans have taken to the streets of Paris to mourn the death of Marcel Marceau at his funeral in France on Wednesday.
The legendary mime artist – who died on Saturday night, aged 84 – was buried at the Pere Lachaise cemetery, where his coffin was draped in a French flag.
Marceau’s devotees joined the large crowd of mourners at the site to pay tribute to the star, who was buried at the same site as singer Jim Morrison and celebrated author Oscar Wilde.
Marceau is credited with reviving the art form after the Second World War, inspired by the ancient traditions popular in Europe, Japan and China, as well as silent movie greats Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.
