Newton-John had endured a long on-and-off battle with breast cancer.

The acclaimed singer and health campaigner – who shot to international fame in the early 1970s and starred in the iconic 1978 movie Grease – was born in Cambridge, England on September 26, 1948.

But she was raised in Melbourne and, despite living most of her life in the US, always considered herself Australian.
