Britain's F1 champion Lewis Hamilton paid tribute to Princess Diana by penning a poem in her honour a day after the 20th anniversary of her death.

Hamilton posted the poem, which he called "England's Rose", on his Instagram account. The sparsely punctuated poem starts: "The day we lost our Nations Rose, Tears we cried like rivers flowed, The earth stood still, As we laid her to rest."

The poem bears a passing resemblance to Elton John's song "Candle in the Wind", which he performed at Diana's funeral in 1997.
Diana was killed in a car crash in a Paris road tunnel on August 31, 1997.
