Australian Football Hall of Fame legend Graham 'Polly' Farmer has died aged 84.

The Western Australian forged a spectacular career in the WAFL before and after a successful stint with Geelong in the VFL.

One of the greatest ruckmen of all time, Farmer was named in the AFL Team of the Century in 1996 and as captain of the Indigenous Team of the Century in 2005.

Farmer, a three-time Sandover medallist, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease 24 years ago.

The West Australian reports Farmer died in hospital surrounded by his family.
