The 52-year-old was found unresponsive in his villa about 5.15pm on Friday after not arriving for dinner with friends, as planned.

Spokesperson for the Thai police Kritsana Pattanacharoen said the autopsy report concluded Warne had died from a 'natural death'.

Police have informed his family and the Australian embassy, according to The Guardian.

It's now being said that the police will provide the report to the prosecutor to close the case.

Bo Phut police station superintendent Yuttana Sirisombat said Warne had been suffering chest pains before arriving in Thailand.

A German woman was questioned by Thai police after she entered the back of the ambulance to move Warne's body off Koh Samui island.

Paramedic Anuch Han-iam told The Sun that Warne was already unresponsive by the time medical help arrived at 5pm local time.

He said: "Shane’s friends were already trying to bring him back to life.

"I took over doing CPR while we waited for an ambulance. They were desperate. I think one was crying. They were really stressed and panicked.

"They kept trying to wake him and I heard someone saying, ‘Come on, Shane. Come on, Shane’.

"I could see they were all shocked and I just tried to concentrate and do my best. There were about four or five other people in the room. All men, there were no women."

Han-iam also stated that from the villa's appearance there was no sign that any kind of hard partying had occurred.

He added: "The villa was clean and I didn’t see any beer or cigarettes inside.

"There was nothing unusual that made me think they’d been partying. I didn’t know when I arrived that it was Shane Warne. But I know who he is, he’s a star.

"I did my best for him and gave all my energy. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t help him."

Sporting News chief executive Tom Hall has revealed Warne’s last meal was a plate of Vegemite toast.

“I have dined with Shane in many fine establishments, but rather than sample some of the local Thai fare, we tuck into a plate of Vegemite on toast,” Hall wrote in an article on the outlet’s website.
