The son of Robin Williams has paid an emotional tribute to the actor on what would have been his 70th birthday. The beloved actor and comedian died by suicide in 2014 at the age of 63.

He was famous for hit movies such as Mrs Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting. After his death, the star was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia (LBD).

The disease, which was originally misdiagnosed as being Parkinson's, was described by his wife Susan Schneider as "the terrorist inside my husband's brain".

According to the NHS, symptoms of LBD include having hallucinations, being drowsy, confusion and slower movement. These problems can make regular activities harder and the condition could eventually led to people being unable to look after themselves.
