"His family have kindly requested that they be given the time and privacy to mourn his passing, but they would like to thank everyone who has been by Professor Hawking's side - and supported him - throughout his life", the statement said.
Physicist Stephen Hawking, a scientific mastermind helped mankind better understand the world and the universe, died at the age of 76.
Often referred to as "one of the most unread books of all time" for the hard-to-grasp concepts, it included only one equation: E = mc2 or the equivalence of mass and energy, deduced by Einstein from his theory of special relativity.
He communicated his ideas through an American-accented speech synthesiser after a life-saving tracheotomy in 1985 took away his ability to speak.

Professor Hawking sought to explain some of the most complicated questions of life while himself working under the shadow of a likely premature death. He was told he had only a few years to live.
He went on to become a researcher at the University of Cambridge and Professorial Fellow at the Gonville and Caius College.
In 1979, Hawking became the Lucasian professor of mathematics at Cambridge, formerly held by Isaac Newton.
Professor Hawking has 12 honorary degrees, a CBE and was awarded the US Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
Hawking separated from his wife in 1991 and married his nurse, Elaine Mason, four years later.
The world famous physicist and cosmologist was the subject of the 2014 film "The Theory Of Everything", which starred Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.
Hawking also warned Britain ahead of the Brexit referendum in 2016 against leaving the European Union: "Gone are the days when we could stand on our own against the world".
