WASHINGTON - Former US astronaut, Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, has died at the age of 82, US media reported on Saturday.

Armstrong underwent a heart-bypass surgery earlier this month to relieve blocked coronary arteries.

As commander of the Apollo 11 mission, Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.
