Australian radio and TV presenter Jonathan Coleman was laid to rest today.

The beloved TV presenter died at 65 after a four-year battle with prostate cancer. His son Oscar Coleman honoured him with a heartfelt message.

"Remembering my Dad @jonocoleman today. Hopefully, we'll be allowed a bigger celebration with more than 10 people in a month or two," Oscar wrote alongside a pamphlet from the small ceremony on July 22.

"Celebrating the life of Jonathan Harry Coleman," the leaflet read.

Current COVID-19 restrictions mean up to 10 people can attend an indoor or outdoor funeral or memorial service or gathering afterwards — but they must wear a mask indoors.

Jonathan was known for his early work on Simon Townsend's Wonder World! in 1979. He went on to host radio shows on Triple J and Triple M, before heading to the UK.

He was most recently a presenter on Studio 10.

News of his death was confirmed on July 11 when his family issued a statement.

"Jono and I have been soulmates for close to 40 years. We have been fortunate to live a rich and wonderful life and I have been lucky enough to watch up-close someone with enormous talent and the special gift to make people laugh," his wife Margot said.

"I will miss him beyond words and with the support of our gorgeous children, Oscar and Emily, and their partners, we will continue to live in the manner he wanted.

"When I asked Jono recently how he wanted to be remembered, he said, 'For doing a good deed every day.' Such was the generosity and caring nature of the love of my life."
