New photographs have emerged from the hotel room in Thailand where Shane Warne died on Friday evening. Thai Police have revealed Warne was suffering chest pains before he flew from Australia for a holiday in Koh Samui.

Police Colonel Yuthana Sirisombat told reporters that they were informed about Warne’s history of heart disease and asthma by his family before he left Australia last week.

The Aussie cricket legend had recently “seen a doctor about his heart”, said Sirisombat.

As a result, Thai police have ruled out treating the 52-year-old’s death as suspicious, but do not yet have an official cause of death.

Warne’s body has been sent to Suratthani Hospital for an autopsy, whereas his family wants to take it back to Australia as soon as possible.

It comes after a large amount of blood was spotted in Warne’s room at the Samujana Villas resort.

According to several reports, blood stains were seen on the carpet, three towels and a pillow, reportedly from Warne during the desperate attempts made to save his life.

“A large amount of blood was found in the room,” Police Major Generak Satit Polpinit, commander of Surat Thani Provincial Police, told Thai newspaper Matichon on Saturday. “When CPR was started, the deceased had coughed up liquid and was bleeding.”

Earlier, Warne’s management team had released a brief statement about his death.

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

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