Sen. John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam who ran unsuccessfully for president as a self-styled maverick Republican in 2008, died at the age of 81.

The war hero, who was also a staunch critic of President Donald Trump, had been battling an aggressive brain cancer since July 2017.

The tragic news of his death came a day after his family announced McCain was discontinuing further cancer treatment.

"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018. With the senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years," said a statement from his office.
