London: Australia’s legendary cricketer Shane Warne had died from natural causes, revealed an autopsy report on Monday.
A report in mirror.co.uk quoting Thai police said that the spinner’s family “have been informed” and that they “accept the finding”.
The 52-year-old cricketer had died on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand after suffering a suspected heart-attack on Friday. A Warne associate had tried to resuscitate the former cricketer for almost 20 minutes before the ambulance arrived but he was declared dead on arrival in hospital.
The ex-cricketer’s body will now be handed over to the Australian consular officials for return to his country where he will be given a state funeral.
“Today investigators received the autopsy result, in which the medical opinion is that the cause of death is natural,” the report quoting Thai deputy national police spokesman Kissana Phathanacharoen’s statement, said.
