The head of Russia's spy agency has reportedly died aged 63 'after a long illness' - it has been announced.

Russia's TASS news agency reported that Colonel-General Igor Korobov, who coordinated the response to the Salisbury spy poisoning in March this year, had died without specific details on the circumstances of his death.

A statement from the Russian Defence Ministry also failed to give details about his illness but lauded Korobov as a 'true son of Russia' and offered condolences to his family.

Last month, Korobov was said to have been in 'sudden ill health' after a dressing down from Russian President Vladimir Putin over 'deep incompetence' shown in the Salisbury poisonings and other international operations.

He probably got a dose of the radioactive substance his agents had been using to kill enemies of the State.
