A police officer who took the place of a hostage during a terror attack at a French supermarket married his partner while on his death bed.

Arnaud Beltrame voluntarily swapped himself for a female store worker during Friday's siege.

The 44-year-old officer died in hospital from his injuries after being shot three times by the gunman.

His brother Cedric said his brother "didn't have a chance" when in the hostage situation.

He added that his actions were "beyond the call of duty".

"He gave his life for strangers. He must have known that he didn't really have a chance. If that doesn't make him a hero, I don't know what would."
