Shane Warne dies age 52

NEW DETAILS emerge about Shane Warne’s death as local police rule out foul play.

The moments before Shane Warne’s sudden death at a luxury Thai villa on Friday evening have been revealed, as local Thai police rule out foul play.

Thai police in Koh Samui on Saturday confirmed they had now ruled out any suspicious circumstances in the tragic death.

“No foul play was suspected at the scene based on our investigation,” Thai police told AFP. 

The Australian leg-spinner, 52, was found unresponsive in a villa in Thailand by three friends, his management announced this afternoon, reports Fox Sport.

The three people, who were also staying in the villa on Koh Samui island, tried unsuccessfully to revive him, Chatchawin Nakmusik of the Bo Put police told Reuters.

Nakmusik added Warne was taken by ambulance to hospital, where medical personnel could not revive him.

Chatchawin said Warne’s body had been transferred to another hospital for autopsy and his associates would be questioned by police today, but added there were no signs of foul play.

Liz Hurley broke her silence to pay tribute to Warne, who was with pals at a luxury villa in Thailand when he was found unresponsive on Friday.

She said: “I feel like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart.”
