Iman Abdulmajid, the widow of David Bowie, has broken her silence since the death of her husband.

In a simple Twitter post, the supermodel posted a picture which read "'Love and Gratitude' - Iman".

The tweet was 'favourited' over 1000 times.

Bowie's family have kept a low profile since his death from cancer on 10 January.

However, Duncan Jones, Bowie's son from his marriage with Angie Bowie, has been active on social media since 23 January.  

In a tweet, he thanked people for their "incredible kind words and thoughts."

He also retweeted a post from cancer charity Marie Curie, which shared a thank you letter to Bowie from a palliative care doctor.  

In addition to thanking Bowie for his music, the letter, by Dr Mark Taubert of the Velindre NHS Trust, also thanked him for the dignified way he met his death.

Dr Taubert said: "Your story became a way for us to communicate very openly about death, something many doctors and nurses struggle to introduce as a topic of conversation."
