    The former president and chairman of Sony, Norio Ohga, who was credited with developing the compact disc, has died aged 81, the company has said.


    Ohga, who led the company from 1982 to 1995, died of multiple organ failure in the Japanese capital, Tokyo.

    Sony's chairman, Sir Howard Stringer, said his predecessor's foresight and vision had transformed the company into a global entertainment leader.

    Ohga was still a senior adviser to the company at the time of his death.
