The post read: "Last night at around 9pm, my beautiful little girl Coco died at home with the family by her side. Her little heart gave in, we think it was a heart attack. I tried to revive her but it was no use.

"She'd had the best day, happier than I'd seen her in a long time. She was such a special dog, born with so many problems and I feel so lucky to have adopted her. Her breeder said she was going to have to put her down as she wouldn't be able to afford all the things she would need to survive, she went through a lot to become the bouncy, lazy loving dog she was.

"On her last day, we shared a special moment playing together which I will never forget. I will miss her snoring and how happy she was always to see me. She was only 6, healthy and happy.

"Naturally, my heart is broken but I hope she's in a better place with my Aunty Diane. Wanted to share with you and thank those of you who loved and cared for her."

As well as Coco, the 35-year-old also has another bulldog called Roscoe.

He has frequently shared snaps of the pair down the years and they even have their own dedicated Instagram page with 176,000 followers.

The six-time Formula One champion has frequently made public appearances with the pooches, even taking Roscoe with him to the Sports Personality of the Year Awards in 2014.

RIP Coco.
