Frans Timmermans, the first vice president of the European Commission, echoed those remarks, writing on Sunday that McCain was a "hero and exemplary public servant".

"As a POW, John endured the worst of what human beings can do to one another". "We've always had great conversations- and we've been able to agree to disagree, certainly on political issues". At the end of his life he faced a cruel and relentless disease.

On Capitol Hill, McCain became close friends with Senator Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman - a trio dubbed the "Three Amigos".
