Thai police said that Warne was staying in the villa with four friends, and when one of the group tried to wake Shane for food at around 5pm local time today he was found to be unresponsive.
‘He made it all look so easy.At some point, in most Australian backyards, we all tried to deliver a flipper,’ Prime Minister Morrison said of Warne. The leg-spinning great’s family will be offered a state funeral by the Commonwealth and Victorian governments

‘It’s just numbingly shocking to hear about Shane’s passing today,’ Mr Morrison told 3AW in Melbourne.
‘The whole country would have woken up in shock today, it’s just terrible.
‘He was one of those cricketers who changed the game globally, not just here in Australia.
‘And at such a young age, younger than me.That is a terrible shock to all those who knew and loved him.’

The state funeral is set to be held in Melbourne, with a date to be confirmed in consultation with the Warne family, Cricket Australia and the Victorian Government ‘to ensure it honours Shane’s passing and memory’.
Victorian sports minister Martin Pakula has also announced the Great Southern Stand 파타야풀빌라 at the MCG will be renamed the S.K.Warne Stand.
‘Shane was one of our greatest cricketers of all time, one of only a few that could approach the extraordinary achievements of the great Don Bradman. His achievements were the product of his talent, his discipline and passion for the game he loved,’ Morrison said.
‘But Shane was more than this to Australians.Shane was one of our nation’s greatest characters. His humour, his passion, his irreverence, his approachability ensured he was loved by all. Australians loved him. We all did.

‘There was something magical that he brought to our summers.The bleached blonde hair, the almost casual way he moved to send down a delivery, and his engagement with the crowd. He was one of a kind.
Morrsion said Warne inspired many children around the world to try their hand at cricket.
‘He made it all look so easy.At some point, in most Australian backyards, we all tried to deliver a flipper,’ he explained.
‘As we heard as a commentator, behind the playfulness that we associated with Shane, there was a player who understood the strategies and intricacies of cricket as few others.A brilliance that will always be remembered alongside that of Bradman and 파타야풀빌라 Benaud.
‘There was also a generosity to so many people away from the cameras. With a smile and a g’day he’d bridge every gap.
‘Shane was his own man, following his own path.In those times when he could have been knocked down by the headlines, he got back up. He always did.
‘Shane was the ‘King of Spin’ because there was none like him. The ‘ball of the century’ will be talked about forever,’ Morrison said.
