Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has died of a “suspected heart attack”, aged 52.
Dubbed the greatest leg spinner of all time, Warne won 350 Test caps for his country as well as a further 110 ODI caps.
Warne’s management released a brief statement saying he died in Koh Samui, Thailand of a suspected heart attack, according to Fox Sports.
It read: ‘Shane was found unresponsive at his villa and despite the best efforts of medical personnel, he could not be revived,’ the statement read.
“The family requests confidentiality at this time and will provide further details in due course.”
As well as playing at international level, Warne played domestic cricket for his home state of Victoria and later for Hampshire in England.
He captained Hampshire for three seasons from 2005 to 2007.
He retired from international cricket in January 2007 at the end of Australia’s Ashes 5-0 series victory over England.
