Thomas Sankara, the assassianted president of Burkina Faso

Thomas Sankara was the president of Burkina Faso; unlike many other African leaders, he was known for frugal lifestyle, closeness to the public, visionary and progressive policies.
While a leader with visions and competency, he was assassinated in 1987, which cut short a promising leadership.
Have any people heard of him?
Is he currently a larger than life figure?
What legacies did he leave?
