Former Australian prime minister and Labor Party leader Bob Hawke, who dominated the country's politics in the 1980s, has died at the age of 89.
The charismatic politician, renowned for his love of beer and cricket, served from 1983 to 1991 and is credited with modernising the economy.
He was the centre-left Labor Party's longest-serving PM, who achieved the highest approval ratings of any leader.
He died "peacefully at home", his wife said in a statement.
"Today we lost Bob Hawke, a great Australian - many would say the greatest Australian of the post-war era," Blanche d'Alpuget added.
