Emotional tributes have poured in for Shane Warne who has sadly died aged 52 following a suspected heart attack.
Warne's team released a brief statement on Friday, confirming he had tragically died on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand.
"Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived," the statement read.
"The family requests privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course."
Past and present stars of the game have paid tribute to the legendary leg spin bowler, including the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle and Ben Stokes.
Not to mention Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara, who both battled with Warne during their storied careers.
