GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) _ Victor Borge, the daffy pianist whose whimsical approach to the classics earned him the moniker the ``clown prince'' of Denmark, died Saturday. He was 91.

Borge died at home in sleep, his longtime manager, Bernard Gurtman, said.

Borge had just returned from Copenhagen, the city of his birth, and was excited about spending Christmas with his family, Gurtman said. Borge would have turned 92 on Jan. 3.
