Mr Levinson, the longest-held hostage in US history, disappeared in 2007 on the Iranian island of Kish.

White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said in a statement: “While the investigation is ongoing, we believe that Mr Levinson may have passed away some time ago.”

Mr Levinson’s family said in a post on Facebook and a website: “Today with aching hearts, we are sharing devastating news about Robert Levinson, the head of our family.”

“We recently received information from US officials that has led both them and us to conclude that our wonderful husband and father died while in Iranian custody.”

“We don’t know when or how he died, only that it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The family said they did not know when, or even if, Mr Levinson’s body would be returned to them, calling it “the very definition of cruelty”.
