In a touching tribute to the late cricketer, Damian shared a series of photos showing the pair together and wrote: "I’m still trying to wrap my head around this… SW was a father figure to me for most of my formative years and was truly one the best men I've ever known. My heart is broken. Thinking of and sending love to all SW's family."

Elizabeth, meanwhile, broke her silence earlier on Saturday with a heartbreaking post. She wrote: "I feel like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart @shanewarne23."
