Award-winning sports journalist Rebecca Wilson has died in Sydney from breast cancer, aged 54.
Her husband John Hartigan and sons Tom and Will told News Corp she died at the family home in the early hours of Friday after a long battle with the disease.
"Rebecca kept knowledge of her illness a closely guarded secret. The majority of her friends, colleagues and indeed members of her family were unaware of the extent of her illness. She did so to limit their suffering," the family said in a statement.
