THAILAND March 4: Shane Warne, the Australian cricket great, has died after suffering a suspected heart attack, aged 52.  A statement from his management team, issued on Friday afternoon, said that Warne had died suddenly while in Thailand.

It read: “Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived,” the statement reads.

“The family requests privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course.”

Warne had posted a message on Twitter just 12 hours before news of his death emerged, paying tribute to fellow Australian cricket great Rod Marsh, who died on Thursday at the age of 74.

Tributes and expressions of shock quickly emerged on Twitter as fans of Warne reacted to the news.

Indian cricket Virender Sehwag said: “Cannot believe it. One of the greatest spinners, the man who made spin cool, superstar Shane Warne is no more.”

Warne grew a famed reputation for taunting England fans throughout his career during Ashes series, and a tribute was quickly paid from the national team’s official supporters’ group.

The Barmy Army Twitter account posted: “Simply can’t believe we are writing this.

“RIP Shane Warne, one of the game’s best characters and finest bowlers.

“Forever etched in Ashes history.”
