    OLA Brunkert, a session musician who recorded and toured with the Swedish pop group ABBA, has been found dead at his home in Spain after apparently falling from a window.

    Police said the body of the drummer, 61, who lived alone at his home on the Mediterranean island of Majorca, was found by a neighbour late yesterday in a pool of blood with an injury to his neck.

    He appeared to have fallen from a window, and police said an autopsy would be carried out to determine if the death was accidental.

    The Swede played as a session musician with ABBA, which recorded and performed in 1970s and early '80s. He also toured with the group.

    Brunkert retired to Majorca, where he performed with his jazz group.

    ABBA's four stars Bjoern Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faeltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad became international sensations with hits such as Money, Money, Money, Waterloo, Fernando and Dancing Queen.

    Despite having broken up a quarter of a century ago, the group still sells between two and three million albums a year
