Shane Warne's son stunned by what he found in his late father's storage unit

The son of late Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has been stunned by what he found in one of his father's storage units following his death.

Warne, widely viewed as one of the greatest cricketers in history, passed away in 2022 at the age of just 52.

Warne's son Jackson is still going through the Australian cricket icon's possessions following his death.

The 24-year-old is currently sorting out one of his father's storage units along with his sisters Brooke and Summer, and has now revealed an unusual discovery.

"We're going through, at the moment, some of his storage units - because he's just got storage units full of stuff," Jackson told Channel 7.

"He just collected and collected and collected.

"And some of the stuff we’re going through at the moment is golf clubs.

"And I am not kidding, he has probably got 300 drivers, 400 putters, 50 million golf bags - there is just an abundance of stuff."

Jackson was speaking during a promotion of the Shane Warne Legacy initiative, which is offering free heart checks to the general public during Australia's Test match against Pakistan at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Twenty-three machines have been set up around the stadium, in honour of the number Warne wore during his playing days.

“We have exactly 23 machines set up all around the ground," Jackson added.

"Even if you haven’t got a ticket to the game, you can actually get one of these tests outside of the ground.

"So, even if you’re only watching this at home, you can still get your test outside of the MCG.

"Dad would be so honoured and so happy that now his legacy is saving lives."

Warne remains second on the all-time Test wicket-taker list with 708 dismissals, behind only Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan on 800 wickets.

A multiple Ashes winner and 1999 World Cup champion, Warne was given a state funeral in Australia following his death.
