Actor Billy Crystal has paid tribute to his friend and former co-star Robin Williams at the 66th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

Crystal told an audience of Hollywood's biggest stars: "It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives."

Among those honoured with awards at the ceremony were Sherlock actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jim Parsons also won for lead actress and actor in a comedy.
