Alberto Granado, the man who accompanied the Argentine-born revolutionary Che Guevara on a motorcycle trip across South America in the 1950s, has died in Cuba at the age of 88.

Their trip across the continent inspired Guevara's radical ideals and was immortalised in the 2004 film "The Motorcycle Diaries".
