A Thai masseuse has told how she knocked on Shane Warne’s bedroom door to give him a foot rub, but he was already dead.
The therapist, nicknamed Pen, was booked to give the cricket legend a foot rub, but she and his maid couldn’t rouse him to get him to answer the door to his room.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, she said: ‘There was no sound in his room.’
She then texted her boss: ‘He’s not having a massage now, he won’t wake up.’
Pen went on: ‘Shane was having a massage and the two other girls left before me.
‘I had a text saying that I would do his nails and a foot massage when they had finished.
‘I think Shane was sleeping in his room the whole time because I didn’t see him while I was giving a nail treatment to his friend.
‘I was supposed to go to see Shane after that but when the maid knocked on his door there was no reply.
‘There was no sound in the room and they said he was sleeping, so I left.
‘When I got home I was told he had died, so I was really sad. I think that he had been dead while I was in the villa.’

The pictures, obtained exclusively by MailOnline from the Thai police report into his death, forms an important part of the investigation.
The two masseuses who visited Warne’s room are believed to have been the last people to see him alive. Police have ruled out any foul play and an autopsy confirmed he died of natural causes.
A source close to the investigation told MailOnline: ‘The images show four masseuses arriving at the resort 1.53pm on Friday March 4. Two of them went to give Mr Warne a massage while the other two visited his friends.
‘He is believed to have requested two masseuses from staff at the resort.
‘Mr Warne was found unresponsive by one of his friends at around 5.15pm.
‘He appears to have suffered a heart attack. There is nothing to suggest that that there was any foul play relating to his death and no alcohol or drugs were discovered inside the room.
‘The two women who visited Mr Warne in the last moments of his life are of importance to the police investigation as they would have been the last to see him alive.’
Warne’s body is now being flown home for a private memorial service with his family and a state funeral at the MCG
Police chief Yuttana Sirisombat told MailOnline: ‘He called the girl to massage. It was just massage. He didn’t die because of the massage. He wasn’t well.’
Detectives revealed on Saturday that they found his room with spots of blood on the carpet and vomit after his friend performed CPR for at least 20 minutes before paramedics arrived.
Thai officials do not believe Warne’s death was suspicious, while also noting no alcohol or cigarettes were found inside the luxury villa.
Two spots of blood were found on the carpet at the foot of Warne’s bed as well as three blood-stained towels, and one pillow, with blood stains also on the mattress. Ambulance crews also reported a pool of vomit by the bed.
In other photographs given to MailOnline, five forensic specialists are seen examining the room where he was found.

Police have ruled out any foul play and are convinced he died of natural causes, but said the masseurs are key to their investigation as they are likely the last people to see him alive
Paramedic Anuch Han-Iam told media on the scene that when he and his colleague responded to the emergency call, Warne’s friends were already frantically trying to revive him by performing CPR.
‘They were desperate. I think one was crying. They were really stressed and panicked,’ said Anuch Han-iam.
‘They kept trying to wake him and I heard someone saying, ‘come on, Shane, come on, Shane’.
‘I could see they were all shocked and I just tried to concentrate and do my best.’
Mr Anuch said the room was clean and there were no signs of partying.
‘I did my best for him and gave all my energy. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t help him,’ he said.
Former Hampshire cricketer Warne, one of the biggest names in the sport’s history, suffered from asthma and had recently complained of chest pains at home in Australia and been to see a doctor over issues with his heart.
He had flown into Koh Samui on Thursday evening and had been staying at the $4,000-a-night resort.
The following afternoon he had visited a local tailor to be fitted for a suit before heading back to his room and requesting a massage.
Shane Warne was found unconscious in a villa in the resort of Koh Samui (pictured). The father-of-three could not be revived, his manager said. The villa was on Koh Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand
Mr Neophitou, who produced his TV special Shane, joined Warne with website manager Gareth Edwards and Tom Hall from Sporting News on the sun-drenched island.
He went to wake him up shortly afterwards so they could go and enjoy a few drinks but found him unconscious.
Mr Neophitou gave him CPR for 20- minutes before paramedics took over. Warne was taken to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.
His body is now being repatriated back to Australia, where he is to be given a state funeral at Melbourne Cricket Ground in front of an estimated 100,000 mourners.
Concerns have been raised that Warne may have been putting strain on his body with a gruelling 14-day fluid-only diet, to ‘shred’ as Warne put it on social media, which he had just completed before flying to Thailand as a part of a three-month period of relaxation.
Warne’s manager James Erskine, who was also in Thailand, said: ‘He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets, and he was just finished with one. It was a bit all or nothing. It was either white buns with butter and lasagne.’
