Mario Segale, the man after whom video game hero Super Mario was named, has died aged 84.

Mr Segale was a successful Italian-American property developer from the US state of Washington.

In the 1980s, he leased a warehouse to Nintendo of America who decided to name the star of their new video game after him.

According to his obituary, Mr Segale "always ducked the notoriety and wanted to be known instead for what he accomplished in his life".

How’d that work out for him then?

Thank you for - albeit unknowingly - helping to create a legendary gaming character, Mr Segale!

She's just a bit of a mess now. Still would, obvs.

Is there any way we can page all women to let them know they need to stop strawberry floating about with their lips and eyebrows?
