Fans were left heartbroken by the news and many paid tribute to the artist.

One said: “RIP beautiful lady.”

Another wrote: “Rest in peace Maria dear. You’ll never be forgotten.”

One more person wrote: “”We will always remember you, you beautiful soul.”

And another said: “Rest in peace Maria.”

The song Yes Sir, I Can Boogie was adopted by the Tartan Army as the Scotland National team progressed into Euro 2020 back in the summer. 

Maria and bandmate Mayte Mateos scored a worldwide No1 with their tune in 1977.

She said: “After so many years without a song in the charts, it’s hard to put into words how I feel.

“I never thou­ght I’d be in the charts again. I am not young any more but I guess it shows I can still boogie.

“The Scotland team has reminded people we exist, which is very nice.”
