Thai Police revealed on Saturday that the former Australia cricketer had experienced chest pains before his death before adding that he had a medical history of asthma and heart issues.

However, a report according to The Bangkok Post revealed that blood stains were found on the floor of the room where Warne was staying and on the bath towels and pillows.

Pol Maj Gen Satit Polpinit, commander of Surat Thani Provincial Police, told Thai newspaper Matichon the cricketer had “coughed up liquid and was bleeding” when CPR began.

Earlier it was reported that Warne's four friends are tried for 20 minutes to resuscitate him before he was taken to the local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“Shane was having three months off and this was the start of it,” Warne’s manager James Erskine told Fox Cricket.

“They had only arrived the night before.

“They were going to go out for a drink at 5 o’clock, and (Neophitou) knocked on his door at 5.15pm because Warnie was always on time and said “come on you’re going to be late” and then realised something was wrong.”

Warne’s body will be taken to Surat Thani on the mainland on Sunday for an autopsy.
