A Michael Jackson portrait by Andy Warhol is to be auctioned off.

The multi-coloured 1984 painting will go on show ahead of the sale at London's British Music Experience, inside the O2 Arena, where the singer had been due to perform 50 dates.

A similar portrait of Liz Taylor by the late artist, who died in 1987 following a gall bladder operation, sold for 14m in 2007.

In the same year, a 1963 painting Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I) - depicting an overturned car on fire, sold for 42.8m, which was a record for a Warhol piece reports BBC News.

The late artist was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement and he experimented by creating artworks from mass-produced images from American popular culture.

Details of Jackson's autopsy results are expected to be announced imminently.
