Martin McGuinness has quit politics due to a serious illness.
The former deputy first minister and IRA leader has announced he will not stand in the upcoming Northern Ireland Assembly election.
His resignation from his post over a failed green energy scheme that will end up costing the tax payer millions sparked the March election.
Mr McGuinness, 66, has been ill for a number of weeks.
He said he was no longer physically capable to fight the election.
