Billy Crystal will honour his late pal Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards on Monday (25Aug14).

Announcing the news on Tuesday (20Aug14), show executive producer Don Mischer revealed the award ceremony would honour the Good Will Hunting star with "the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserves."

He will be remembered during the In Memoriam portion of the show.

Ironically, the late funnyman honoured Jonathan Winters during the same Emmy Awards segment last year (13).

Williams, 63, was found dead in his home in California on 11 August (14).
