Farewell, Terry Jones. The great foot has come down to stamp on you. My god what pleasure you gave, what untrammelled joy and delight. What a wonderful talent, heart and mind

He also directed their film The Holy Grail in 1975, with fellow Python Terry Gilliam, and took sole directorial charge of 1979's Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life in 1983.

Cleese said: "Of his many achievements, for me the greatest gift he gave us all was his direction of Life of Brian. Perfection."

I really do hope when he gets to heaven he is greeted with grins in a choir of angels informing him he's been a very naughty boy.
