Sydney man Kristian Anderson, made famous by a YouTube tribute to his wife after he was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer, has died.

His wife, Rachel, confirmed Mr Anderson died yesterday at Manly Hospital.

The 36-year-old from Curl Curl had been having chemotherapy since he was diagnosed in October 2009.

His touching YouTube clip was made as a birthday present for his wife and as a thank you for her support.

It featured an introduction by Prime Minister John Key, because Mrs Anderson is a Kiwi.
