Shane Warne’s autopsy was completed in mainland Thailand while the family prepared to fly his body to Australia for a state funeral

Australian cricketer Shane Warne’s autopsy has been completed at a Thai hospital as his family prepares to fly his body home for a state funeral in Australia.

Warne, 52, was found collapsed in his room at 5pm on Friday by his manager at a luxury villa on the island of Koh Samui.

He was pronounced dead of a suspected heart attack after paramedics struggled in vain to revive the cricket legend as his friends shouted: “Come on Shane.”

Friends and Australian officials were on board with the ambulance carrying his body as the ferry made a 90-minute trip to the mainland.

He was taken to Suratthani Hospital in the southern city of Surat Thani, where doctors conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Warne’s family is hoping the father of three’s body will be returned quickly.

They have accepted the offer of a state funeral, with Melbourne Cricket Ground, Warne’s home ground, being suggested as the “most appropriate” location.

Victorian Premier Dan Andrews said: “It will be an opportunity for Victorians to recognize his contribution to his sport, our state and the country.”

Earlier today, Warnes Schneider told The Sun the Australian legend was “full of energy” as he arrived at a beachfront villa for a five-day holiday after commentating on cricket in Australia.

Warne was “buzzing with excitement” before dying at the start of a Thailand break – eating a Vegemite sandwich just hours before.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Warne’s longtime manager James Erskine says the whole family is devastated after the icon died of a suspected heart attack.

‘BAD DREAM’

Erskine said Warne’s ex-wife Simone and their three children Jackson, Brooke and Summer are struggling to cope with the loss.

Erskine told Weekend Today: “I think the three kids are in shock. I spoke to them yesterday and again.

“Jackson just said, ‘We just expect him to come in the door. It’s like a bad dream.

“I spoke to Simone who was really upset and obviously Keith, Shane’s father is quite a strong person but like everyone else he’s just devastated. You can’t believe what happened.

“I think that’s what happens when you have a sudden death and you’re not expecting it.”
