Former Sydney Swans owner and Australian businessman Geoffrey Edelsten has died at age 78.
The Herald Sun reports Edelsten, also a long-time Carlton donor, is believed to have died at his Melbourne apartment on Friday afternoon.
The report says the death is not being treated as suspicious.
Edelsten, a general practitioner turned entrepreneur, bought the Sydney Swans back in 1985 for a reported price of $6 million, which included the repayment of all club debts and a license fee to the league.
