Shane Warne complained of chest pain and sweating after his two-week fluid-only diet before leaving for vacation, his manager James Erskine has revealed.
Warne, one of the finest spinners, died at 52 due to a suspected heart attack in Thailand.
“He did go on these sorts of diets, and he has just finished one, where he only ate fluids for 14 days, and he had done this in the past as well,” Erskine told Nine Network.
“It was either white buns with butter and lasagne stuffed in the middle, or he would have black and green juices.
“He smokes most of his life. I think he suffered a massive heart attack,” Erskine added.
The Thai police has ruled out any foul play. In a post a few days before his demise, Warne had posted a picture of himself in peak physical condition.
“Operation shred has started (10 days in) & the goal by July is to get back to this shape from a few years ago! Let’s go 💪🏻👏🏻 #heathy #fitness #feelgoodfriday,” he wrote.
Warne had met a doctor regarding his heart condition recently. Warne’s family had also informed the Thai police about his history of heart issues and their concern before he left Australia.
One of his friends found the legendary player unresponsive around 5 pm.
Paramedic Anuch Han-iam has recalled that his friends were trying to revive him desperately, and one of them was crying.
They were stressed and panicked. One of his friends revealed that Warne’s last meal was the iconic Australian condiment Vegemite on toast.
