From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 4 November 2019

Olivia Newton-John's iconic outfit from Grease - the black leather jacket and skin-tight trousers - have sold for over $400,000 at an auction.

That's more than twice the price it was expected to go for.

Hundreds of items were up for sale at the auction in Beverly Hills, California - raising $2.4 million.

The auction was fundraising for Ms Newton-John's cancer treatment centre in Australia.

The singer is herself fighting breast cancer for the third time since 1992.

Also up for sale was Ms Newton-John's original script from the film and a custom Pink Ladies jacket monogrammed with the name "Sandy".
