Greatest Leg-Spinner Ever Shane Warne Dies, Suspected Heart Attack

Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has died.

The leg-spinner died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 52.

A statement from Warne’s management published in the Mirror said: “It is with great sadness we advise that Shane Keith Warne passed away of a suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand today, Friday 4 March.

“Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived.

“The family requests privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course.”

Warne is the greatest leg-spinner of all time, having taken 708 Test match wickets, a figure only surpassed by Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan.

Pakistani international cricketer Muhammad Rizwan tweeted: “Sharing in the sadness of the cricket world on the demise of legend Shane Warne. Truly the end of an era. I pray his family, friends and fans find peace and comfort in this time of grief. #respect
