Friends and family paid farewell to Australia cricket veteran Shane Warne at his private funeral in Melbourne, which was attended by a slew of international cricket stars and former teammates. The service was held at St Kilda Football Club, an Australian Rules team that Warne has supported his entire life.

On March 4, the great Australian spinner died at the age of 52 while on vacation in Thailand with his buddies. The cause of death was initially thought to be a heart attack, but an examination later confirmed he died of natural causes. Last Friday, his body was brought to Melbourne via a private jet.

Brooke, Jackson, and Summer, as well as former international cricketers, local media stars, and his close-knit poker circle, were among the mourners. Former cricketers Mark Taylor, lan Healy, Mark Waugh, Michael Clarke, and Glenn McGrath, as well as former England captain Michael Vaughan, were among those in attendance.

Warne’s coffin was given a lap of honour at St Kilda’s home stadium after the service, with Tina Turner ‘Simply The Best being played as they left.

Outside the venue, his close friend and television broadcaster Eddie McGuire, who delivered the eulogy, told the Herald Sun newspaper, “He brought together so many things. He was so beloved because he was flawed because he was Superman.”
