Thai police confirmed they have ruled out any suspicious circumstances following Warne’s death.

Officers also cited information from the cricketer’s family confirming he had asthma and heart issues.

Superintendent Yuttana Sirisombat said Warne had experienced chest pains before his death and “had seen a doctor about his heart”.

Warne’s body was picked up from a local hospital this morning in a motorcade flanked by the Australian ambassador and local police officers.

He will be taken by ferry to Surathani hospital on the mainland where an official autopsy will be performed.

His family have accepted the offer of a state funeral when his body is repatriated to Australia.

It comes as manager James Erskine shed light on the sportsman’s final moments in Fox Sport special, Remembering Shane Warne.

He said the group were due to go for drinks at 5pm when pal Andrew Neophitou knocked on his door and realised “something was wrong”.

James added: “He went in there and said ‘come on, you’re going to be late’ and then realised something was wrong.

“And he turned him over and gave him CPR and mouth to mouth, which lasted about 20 minutes and then the ambulance came.

“They took him to the hospital, which was about a 20-minute drive and I got a phone call about 45 minutes later saying he was pronounced dead.”

Warne had spent the day watching Australia’s Test cricketers take on Pakistan from bedroom before the tragedy unfolded.

He was given a Thai massage at the village at around 4pm and “looked lively and happy” when it was finished.

Cops released pictures of the room as forensics teams continued their work at the £2,000-a-night villa.

‘DESPERATE’

Paramedic Anuch Han-iam told The Sun on Sunday: “Shane’s friends were already trying to bring him back to life.

“I took over doing CPR while we waited for an ambulance.

“They were desperate. I think one was crying. They were really stressed and panicked.

“They kept trying to wake him and I heard someone saying, ‘Come on, Shane. Come on, Shane’.

“I did my best for him and gave all my energy. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t help him.”

Tributes have flooded in for the cricket ace led by his ex-fiancee Liz Hurley.

The actress was in a relationship with Warne for three years until they split in 2013.

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

Piers Morgan branded his close pal “unique, ferocious, mischievous” in his column for The Sun.

He added: “I’m absolutely gutted he’s gone so soon and will miss him enormously.

“But I enjoyed every second of my hundreds of hours in his exhilarating, unpredictable and always entertaining company, and of how many people in life can you say that?”
