Patti told Daily Mail Australia at the time that it was a result of ‘complications with everything’.

‘When you have a leg amputated you have to be on a lot of painkillers and Bert had had, just this year alone, he’s had eight procedures, which all involved anaesthetics and that affects you pretty badly,’ she said.

The TV legend was given a Victorian state funeral on November 12 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne.
