Elizabeth Hurley has posted a heartfelt tribute to her ex-fiancé Shane Warne whose sudden death was confirmed on Friday.

“Feels like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart,” Hurley captioned a series of photos of her and Warne on Instagram.

Photos showed Hurley and Warne kissing on the beach, attending various events together and smiling for a selfie.

Warne, who was widely regarded as one of the greatest players, shrewdest tacticians and ultimate competitors in cricket’s long history, was 52.

Fox Sports television, which employed Warne as a commentator, quoted a family statement early Saturday saying he died of a suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand.

“Shane was found unconscious in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical personnel, he could not be revived,” the statement said.

Cricket Australia described Warne as “a true cricketing genius”.

“Shane’s strength of character and enormous resilience saw him bounce back from career-threatening finger and shoulder injuries, and his stamina and will to win, as well as his self-confidence were key factors in the great Aussie side of the late 1990s and early 2000s.”

Thai police say a friend staying at the same resort went to see Warne when the cricketer star hadn’t arrived for dinner and found him unconscious at the villa. Warne was taken by ambulance to the Thai International Hospital but could not be revived. His body was transferred to Ko Samui hospital for an autopsy.

Warne held the record for most Test wickets (708) when he retired in 2007 after his 145th game. Only Muttiah Muralitharan, non-spinner from Sri Lanka, passed him, with 800.

Hurley and Warne were previously engaged, but decided to call it quits in 2013.

Warne’s death comes nearly two years after Hurley mourned the death of her ex Steve Bing. Bing fathered his son, Damian.

“I’m saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us. It’s a terrible end. Our time together was happy and I’m posting these photos because even though we’ve been through some tough times, this are the fond and wonderful memories of a gentle, kind man who matters,” Hurley wrote in a tribute in 2020.

Hurley was also previously linked to the British actor Hugh Grant. She also married and divorced Indian textile heir Arun Nayar before becoming engaged to Warne.

The actress previously said she was friendly with her exes.

“All my boyfriends, husbands and fiancés have been my best friends, so it’s a terrible void they leave,” she said. Explain. “I think that’s when you learn the importance of having other sources of comfort, pleasure and intimacy. You feel comfortable around people who are your best friends. for 30 years, but sometimes you meet someone you click with – it’s important to stay open to that.”

Warne previously said in an interview that the years he dated Hurley were “the happiest of my life”.
