Shane Warne had recently complained of ‘chest pain and sweating’ after undergoing a “ridiculous” two-week fluid-only diet before he left for his vacation, the Australian spin legend’s manager James Erskine has revealed.
Warne, a spin wizard who made the world fall in love with his craft, died at the age of 52 due to a suspected heart attack in Thailand on Friday, leaving the world shell-shocked.
“He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets and he just finished one, where he basically only ate fluids for 14 days and he’d done this three or four times,” Erskine told ‘Nine Network.’
“It was a bit all or nothing. It was either white buns with butter and lasagne stuffed in the middle or he would be having black and green juices.
“He obviously smoked most of his life. I don’t know; I think it was just a massive heart attack. That’s what I think has happened,” Erskine added.
The Thai Police on Sunday said that initial investigations have shown no indication of foul play in Warne’s death but an autopsy has been conducted.
