Meanwhile, it’s expected Warne’s body will be taken to the Thai mainland today for a post-mortem.

Thai police claim they were told by his friends that he had been experiencing chest pains before he died in his villa.

It’s believed he had been seeing the doctor about his heart problem and had also been battling with asthma.
