The agent, who was travelling as part of the US President's protection team, fell ill last week during Trump's trip to Scotland.

An American Secret Service agent died after suffering a severe stroke during Donald Trump's recent trip to his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland on July 15, the US Secret Service said in a statement on Tuesday.

The 19-year Secret Service veteran passed away in Scotland on Tuesday, surrounded by members of his "immediate family" and coworkers.

"The Secret Service thanks the medical personnel in Scotland, in addition to the members of the White House Medical Unit and Police Scotland, who provided exceptional care and support for a member of our family," reads the statement.

The agent's name has been withheld due to privacy concerns.
