Shane Warne’s son Jackson has taken to social media with a loving tribute to his father on what would have been his 54th birthday.
Jackson, 24, created a video to his late father and did three things during the day that he and his father used to do together.
Warne died of a heart attack on March 4, 2022 in a luxury villa on the Thailand holiday island of Koh Samui.

“So today would have been Dad’s 54th birthday, happy birthday Dad,” Warne begins in the video.
“I thought instead of being sad or posting a story or a post in black or white with a big caption with things that are quite obvious, I’m going to do what Dad would have wanted me to do which is be happy and do things that make me happy.
“I’ve already gone to the gym, but I want to do three things that me and dad used to do together all the time.

“The first one being Maccas (McDonald’s). We will either get Maccas at lunch or dinner, but at some stage today we will get Maccas cause we loved Maccas.
“Second thing is dad’s favourite TV show was Two and a Half Men, but it had to be the episodes with Charlie Sheen. He loved Charlie Sheen and loved Two and a Half Men so I will watch an episode of that.

“Thirdly roulette. Roulette is literally on par with me and dad’s poker and we just loved cheering on a 23 for a spin. So we will go downstairs and see if we can hit a 23, and yeah, happy birthday dad.”
The video continues with Warne eating McDonald’s and watching Two and a Half Men, with a scene playing of Sheen sitting on a lounge.
“You literally can not make this stuff up,” Warne said.
“I don’t even have to use YouTube to look for it (Two and a Half Men) and it’s the first thing on Fox.”
Warne then goes to the casino and plays roulette, however he did not win.
“So we just did a few spins, we didn’t hit a 23 but the table next to us did,” Warne said.
“So I’m looking at that as a sign that he is still here, but he wants us to save our money and go back to the room.
“Happy birthday homma.”
