Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has died at the age of 52 after a suspected heart attack.

Warne, the greatest spin-bowler of all-time, is one of the most entertaining players to ever grace a cricket pitch in a career that spanned 15 years. Affectionately known as 'Warnie', he  took a whopping 708 Test wickets, the most for an Australian, and the second-most of anyone behind only Muttiah Muralitharan. 

Warne was a member of Australia’s World Cup win in 1999, and was part of five Ashes-winning sides between 1993 and 2007.

A statement from Warne’s management said: ‘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.’

RIP Warnie - a true legend of the game.
