Fidel Castro, Cuba's former president and leader of the Communist revolution, has died aged 90, state TV has announced.

It provided no further details.

Fidel Castro ruled Cuba as a one-party state for almost half a century before handing over the powers to his brother Raul in 2008.

His supporters praised him as a man who had given Cuba back to the people. But his opponents accused him of brutally suppressing opposition.

Obituary: Fidel Castro

In April, Fidel Castro gave a rare speech on the final day of the country's Communist Party congress.

He acknowledged his advanced age but said Cuban communist concepts were still valid and the Cuban people "will be victorious".

If you're going to Hell, the only way better than going with Cuban smokes and Cuban rum is Cuban sandwiches and Jerry Lee Lewis' piano.

Hopefully, with Fidel meeting the Reaper, this can lead to a Cuba which follows the path of Czechoslovakia rather than all those other post-Leninist shitholes.

Raúl has been in charge for the past eight years, which has definitely contributed to the acceleration of the Cuban Thaw because he hasn't held a lifetime grudge against the US.

Fidel on the other hand bitched about America and the US presidency until his death. If Fidel had ruled for longer, there would be no embassies between Cuba and the US as part of the progress Raúl has made towards reparations.

Cuba is still an authoritarian shithole where you need a permit to use the international Internet. It's bizarre how Twitter communists hold Cuba to such a high standard.

Why are Muricans so butthurt with Castro?, he was shitty, sure, like any other president. But all this "Glad he's dead and rotting in hell reeeeeeee" is breaking my Alogmeter. I'm not going to defend Fidel nor celebrate his death, but some people surely are going super overboard on his death and reaching cringe levels of reaction.
We call those people "Cuban-Americans".

Some of them say that he was anti-Communist if he hurts the image of glorious Communism.
