Tonight Australian’s will publicly farewell one of Australia’s most entertaining, lovable and brilliant cricketers, Shane Warne.
Warnie was a proud Australian, a national icon, an sportman who perfected his craft like no other – “the Spin King”. But above all else he was a cherished son, a loved brother and an adored father.
He will be missed by many.
The line-up for his state funeral this evening is some of rock royalties finest, fellow sporting greats, commentators, politicians, actors and fans. How wonderful the public gets to pay tribute and celebrate a life well lived.
