A pair of masseuses who were the last people to see Shane Warne alive have been questioned by police after his death last Friday.
The two women were seen on CCTV arriving at a villa where the cricket legend was staying in Koh Samui, Thailand. Police are not linking them to his death via heart attack.
They reportedly told officers that Warne seemed relaxed when he was preparing for a two-hour oil massage.
They were filmed leaving at 4pm with two other women who had massaged Warne’s friend – and were shocked when officers informed them of his death an hour after they left.
“We were satisfied they weren’t connected,” police colonel Yuttana Sirisombat told The Sun. “The investigation didn’t find signs of foul play and we were sure the massage didn’t cause his death.”
Four of Warne’s friends desperately tried to resuscitate him by performing CPR before an ambulance took him to the Thai International Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Adored by millions around the world, the charismatic Warne is considered by many as the greatest bowler to ever play the game.
His illustrious international career spanned 15 years and saw him take 708 Test wickets – the most ever by an Australian and only behind Muttiah Muralitharan in the all-time standings – as well as the most wickets in Ashes history, with 195.
On Monday night, Warne’s family broke their silence to issue a lengthy statement with individual tributes from his parents Keith and Brigette, brother Jason, three children Brooke, Jackson and Summer along with ex-wife Simone Callaghan.
His parents said: “To find words to adequately express our sadness is an impossible task for us and looking to a future without Shane is inconceivable, hopefully the mountain of happy memories we all have will help us cope with our ongoing grief.”
Their statement came after the family accepted an offer from the Victorian government and Prime Minister Scott Morrison of a state funeral for Warne.
