Australia is mourning a true Aussie legend this morning after news broke last night that former Prime Minister Bob Hawke had passed away.

A statement from his wife Blanche d’Alpuget said that Bob “died peacefully at home at the age of 89”.

Bob will be remembered for a lot of things, including being one of Australia’s great PM’s, but one of his most memorable moments was the way in which he would scull a beer.

And so this morning, in honour of a true Aussie legend, Kyle decided to pay tribute by sculling a beer himself.

“Let me just say, in honour to one of the greatest Prime Minster’s that ever lived, cheers to Bob Hawke,” Kyle said.

He lifted his Corona high in the air, then tipped it back, and did Hawkey proud by downing the whole thing in one go.

Great effort from Kyle we must say!


Rest in peace Bob! Everyone should scull a beer today in remembrance a true Aussie great.
