Shane Warne, one of the greatest cricketers of all time, died of a heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand. He was 52 years of age and was a Wisden top cricketer.

What Happened to Shane Warne?
Shane Warne, the Australian cricket legend and the greatest leg-spin bowler of all time, died of a suspected heart attack while on holiday in Thailand last week.
The death prompted an avalanche of tributes from the cricketing world.
Police said he was found unresponsive at his Thai villa around 5.15pm local time. He was taken to the hospital by his friends who tried to revive him.
Songyotchayaninporamet (deputy director, Samui Hospital) performed a post-mortem examination and found that Warne had died of a “congenital illness.”
According to some reports, Warne suffered from asthma and heart problems for a long time.
His family had informed the Thai authorities of their concerns prior to his departure from Australia, according to Yuttana Sirisombat, superintendent at Bo Phut police station on Koh Samui.
After a hectic schedule of commentary commitments in Australia and the UK, Australia’s former leg-spinner was taking three months off.
He was also taking a strict 14-day diet, described as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘extreme’ by his manager James Erskine.
What Caused Shane Warne’s Death?
Shane Warne, a well-known cricketer and inspiration for many young cricketers was his name. His death left fans and the rest of the world in shock.
Despite his untimely demise, fans still miss him and his legacy will live on forever.
Although it is hard to believe that the man we loved has died, new information about the cause have been revealed.
According to the report, the former Australian cricketer died of a suspected heart attack while on a vacation in Thailand with his friends.
He was discovered unresponsive at his villa, and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
Warne was found to have died from a congenital condition. This is a form of ageing that makes the arteries harden and narrow.
His poor lifestyle and smoking habits, as well as obesity, are believed to have contributed to his heart issues.
How did Shane Warne die?
Before he was killed in Thailand, the Australian cricket icon had been on a liquid diet. When he became unresponsive, the king spin bowler was at Samujana Villa in Koh Samui on a “boys trip” when he died.
James Erskine was Warne’s longtime manager. He said that Warne just completed a 14-day fast in which he drank only fluids.
He shared a photo of Warne on Instagram, stating: “Operation shred has started (10 days in) & the goal by July is to get back to this shape from a few years ago!”
Experts warn that extreme diets can be dangerous for the heart. According to Professor Garry Jennings, the chief medical advisor at the Heart Foundation, low-calorie diets don’t provide enough vitamins, nutrients, and carbohydrate for the body.
How was Shane Warne’s final meal?
It has now been revealed that Shane Warne ate a platter of Vegemite toast as his last meal.
He shared it with his friends at a villa in Thailand where he died hours after he suffered a suspected heart attack.
On Friday, the Australian cricketer Gareth Edwards collapsed in his hotel room while on holiday in Koh Samui.
The group were due to go out for drinks at 5pm but Warne was found unconscious by his business manager Mr Neophitou, the cricketer’s manager James Erskine said on Sunday.
They watched the Australia-Pakistan Test live on TV during their time together.
Earlier in the day, they were discussing the best way to watch the match and Warne left them for a while to go to his room.
