Former prime minister Bob Hawke has died at his home, aged 89.

His wife Blanche d'Alpuget released a statement on Thursday night confirming she will hold a private funeral with his children Sue, Stephen, Rosslyn and stepson, Louis, and his grandchildren in Sydney in coming weeks.

"Today we lost Bob Hawke, a great Australian - many would say the greatest Australian of the post-war era," she said.
