A MASSEUSE has revealed 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 go into the cricket legend’s room at a villa on an island in Thailand.

But there was no reply when she and a maid knocked on his door.
Pen, 45, then texted her boss saying: “He’s not having a massage now, he won’t wake up”.
Moments later pals who were on a lads break with Warne, 52, discovered his lifeless body.
Thai Pen had already given one of Shane’s mates a nail treatment in the same property.
She told The Sun: “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.”
Warne died from a suspected heart attack last Friday.
Pen was scheduled to see him at 5pm.
The three friends he was staying with — including manager Andrew Neophitou and sports website owner Tom Hall — battled to revive him with CPR before paramedics arrived.
Yesterday the star’s grieving family paid tribute to the “much loved” ace as a post mortem revealed he died from natural causes.
Parents Keith and Brigette said their son’s death was “a tragedy we will never come to terms with”.
They added: “To find words to adequately express our sadness is an impossible task for us and looking to a future without Shane is inconceivable, hopefully the mountain of happy memories we all have will help us cope with our ongoing grief.”
His children Brooke, 24, Jackson, 22 and 20-year-old Summer, 20, hailed him as the “best dad”.
Warne’s body was taken by ambulance to be flown to his native Australia last night.
In bizarre scenes on Sunday, a female fan gained access to the ambulance which was taking the spin bowling king’s to the post mortem.
She was let inside the vehicle in an apparent security breach and spent less than a minute with Warne before being asked to leave.
Police chief Surachate Hakparn said he investigated and taken no further action.
He said the woman ran a fan club for the star and was upset.
