ANTIVIRUS pioneer John McAfee has reportedly killed himself after he was set to be extradited to the United States.

The 75-year-old tech mogul took his own life in a prison in Barcelona, according to local paper El Pais.

McAfee was arrested on October 3 of last year at El Prat airport in Spain, as he was about to flee the country to Turkey.

That same month, McAfee was charged in Tennessee with evading taxes after failing to report income made from promoting cryptocurrencies while he did consulting work, made speaking engagements and sold the rights to his life story for a documentary.
