Shane Warne‘s daughter Brooke has shared a touching tribute to her dad following his sudden death at age 52 on Friday.

The 24-year-old shared a throwback photo of herself and her dad to Instagram and said she will ‘miss him forever’.

‘Dad my heart it broken, This doesn’t feel real and doesn’t make sense that you are not here with us anymore, it doesn’t feel right, you were taken away too soon and life is so cruel,’ she began.

‘I will forever cherish our final memories together laughing and joking around with each other. We were happy. We were so similar in so many ways and I always used to joke that I got your genes and I use to joke about how much that annoyed me!!’

Brooke continued:’Well now I couldn’t be happier and prouder that I have your genes and I was lucky and will forever be, so proud to call you my dad. I love you to infinity and back and I will miss you forever.’

Warne tragically died on Friday at the age of 52 while on holiday with his friends in Koh Samui, Thailand. He died from ‘natural causes’, an autopsy concluded.

Four friends who were staying with Shane battled to save his life for 20 minutes after he was found unconscious in a villa in their Koh Samui resort. 

Thai police said that he 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 he was found to be unresponsive.

Shane’s manager separately confirmed his death, saying that the father-of-three could not be revived.

Warne became a global star in 1993 by bowling out Mike Gatting with the so-called ‘Ball of the Century’ – his first ball in Ashes cricket.

He went on to get 708 test wickets, tormenting teams all over the world, especially Australia’s great rival England.

Warne’s family will hold a private funeral to say goodbye before a state service is held in front of up to 100,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Close friends and family of the late cricketer will gather in Melbourne after Warne’s body is returned to Australia from Thailand.

Plans are still being finalised for a public memorial due to be held later this month.
