'It's not a shock, we've known how sick she's been, especially the last five days,' Totti told host Tracy Grimshaw of Olivia's passing.

Totti then went on to reveal her heart-wrenching final moments with Olivia.

'I couldn't get to America in time and I wanted to say goodbye, so I asked [her husband John] if he could hold the phone up to her ear...' Totti continued.

'But he got me on FaceTime so I managed to see her.'

'I told her all the things I needed to say,' Totti sobbed. 'She was leaving us... but I could feel like she got it.'

At the end of the interview, Totti said her family would accept Victorian premier Daniel Andrews' offer of a state funeral to celebrate Olivia's extraordinary life and legacy.
