Tributes have been pouring in from all over the world for Australian Cricket legend, Shane Warne, who passed away from a suspected heart attack.
The 52-year-old’s management confirmed in a statement that the retired leg-spinner died in Koh Samui, Thailand.
“It is with great sadness we advise that Shane Keith Warne passed away of a suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand today, Friday 4 March.
“Shane was found unresponsive in his Villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived,” the statement read.
Warne is widely regarded as one of the greatest bowlers to have played the game of Cricket after he retired as Test cricket’s second-most prolific wicket-taker.
