New photographs have emerged from the hotel room in Thailand where Shane Warne died, where two blood stains were found.
Thai police have revealed Shane Warne was suffering chest pains before he left Australia for a holiday in Koh Samui.
Police Colonel Yuthana Sirisombat told reporters on Saturday night his family had informed them of the late cricket legend’s history of heart disease and asthma and their concern about his health before he left Australia last week.
Colonel Sirisombat said it was these family revelations that led police to rule out any foul play in the 52-year-old’s death. Warne’s body has been sent to Suratthani Hospital for an autopsy, as his family fights for it to be returned to Australia as soon as possible.
It comes after blood stains were seen on the carpet of Warne’s room.
New photographs have emerged of where the Spin King was staying at the Samujana Villas resort.
Blood stains were seen on the carpet, reportedly from Warne during his desperate fight for life.
‘He hated drugs’
He was found face down on his bed after a suspected heart attack by close friend Andrew Neophitou, who was an executive producer on a recently released documentary on Warne’s life.
“They were meant to meet some people at 5pm. Neo was next door, he’s always on time,” Warne’s long-time manager James Erskine told The Age.
“He realised he wasn’t well. He tried to give mouth-to-mouth, tried to resuscitate him, he had no heartbeat, the ambulance came 20 minutes later and an hour and a bit later he was pronounced dead.”
Erskine rejected any claims Warne’s death was linked to his reputation as a man who liked to party.
“He was on holiday, having a lie down, siesta, he hadn’t been drinking, he’d been on this diet to lose weight,” he said.
“He didn’t drink much. Everyone thinks he’s a big boozer but he’s not a big boozer at all. I sent him a crate of wine, 10 years later it’s still there. He doesn’t drink, never took drugs, ever. He hated drugs so nothing untoward.”
