As well as his stellar cricket career, where he was regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, Warne was also a regular pundit for Sky Sports during their cricket coverage.

The article also claims he handed the vast amount of his $20.7m (around £11.9m) estate to his three children Jackson, Brooke, and Summer. They each received around 31% of his fortune, documents released by the Victoria Supreme Court revealed, while the rest was split between his brother Jason, his niece Tyla, and nephew Sebastian.

Warne’s passing prompted a huge outpouring of grief across the world. His family were allowed to say goodbye to Warne in a private ceremony, before a huge memorial service at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Around 50,000 people arrived at the home of Australian cricket to pay their respects to the cricket ace who took 708 Test wickets at an average 25.41 in 145 matches between 1992 and 2007. This figure is yet to be surpassed by any Australian player.

He was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2013 before being named one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Century, alongside Sir Donald Bradman, Sir Garfield Sobers, Sir Jack Hobbs, and Sir Vivian Richards.
