Following an investigation at the property, foul play was ruled out by law enforcement.
CCTV footage was studied on Saturday, revealing that nothing untoward caused the spin king’s demise. An autopsy will take place within the next few days, as top Thai medical officials scramble to find an fathomable explanation for this sudden death.
Tributes have poured in relentlessly for the man widely regarded as one of the best bowlers in the history of the game. In his heyday, Shane Warne was hated and adored in equal measure by opposition fans – but even his sternest critics wouldn’t deny what a talent he was.
