Zsa Zsa, the recently-crowned World's Ugliest Dog, has died in her sleep, her owner Megan Brainard has said.

The English Bulldog's lolling tongue and crooked underbite helped her win the title in June.

The nine-year-old spent her final weeks travelling and making television appearances.

However, Zsa Zsa spent over half of her life in a puppy farm before she was rescued by a non-profit organisation and adopted by Ms Brainard.
