Triple English Derby-winning jockey Walter Swinburn has died at the age of 55, British media reported on Monday.

Nicknamed the 'Choirboy', Swinburn was 19 when he rode Shergar to a memorable 10-length victory in the 1981 Derby at Epsom.

After retiring as a jockey in 2000, he worked as a trainer between 2004-11.
