The body of cricket legend Shane Warne will land in Australia later today, almost a week after his shock death in Thailand.

Following an autopsy earlier this week, Thai authorities confirmed Warne had died of natural causes, following a suspected heart attack at a holiday villa on the island of Koh Samui last Friday.
