There has been an outpouring of love from Queen fans to Roger Taylor after a recent heartfelt tribute to his late bandmate, Freddie Mercury.

Roger posted a photo of the pair to mark the 32 years that have passed since Freddie Mercury succumbed to AIDS on November 24, 1991, aged 45.

The picture showed him standing quietly with Freddie Mercury, and the post was simply captioned, "Still miss my buddy."

Fans of the band took to the comments to pay tributes of their own.

"Roger don’t make me sob I tried to be strong the whole day," one wrote while another said, "I’m so sorry, Roger! This was such a tragic loss for everyone all over the world, but he will live on forever in our hearts."

"You never stop missing someone so special," a third commented.

"It's kind of impossible to not miss him. And I'm just a fan, can just imagine how it is being his friend. Tons of love, Roger," another reflected.

Sir Brian May also shared on Instagram that he was at a loss for words as the sombre anniversary unfolded.

"Today’s a sad and quiet private day for me - I won’t be posting any more. Take care out there. Bri," he wrote.
