‘That was Shane Warne in one delivery’: Eddie McGuire pays tribute to his mate
One of Shane Warne’s best mates, Eddie McGuire, shared some of the great memories and times he had with Warne on 6PR Breakfast.
The 52-year-old died after suffering a suspected heart attack at a luxury villa in Thailand on Friday.
Speaking to Gareth Parker, the sports commentator and television presenter, shared how he first came across Warne and how their relationship grew over the years.
“This young bloke a couple of years younger than me appeared on the scene. SKW, and wow, didn’t he change the world of cricket,” he said.
“It’s been a horrible, horrible period for everyone who loves the game and loves those larger than life characters.”
McGuire says arrangements are being finalised for a state funeral which will be a fitting tribute for a man who led an extraordinary life.
“The great thing is everyone is coming together on this. It’s a real show of love.”
