Shane Warne’s spin coach Terry Jenner has died, aged 66.

Jenner played nine tests for Australia before spending 18 months in prison in 1988 for stealing money from an employer to pay his gambling debts.

He credited his partnership with Warne as allowing him to turn his life around.

The feeling was mutual, as Warne showed when he tweeted: “So much to say about the great man – we all owe TJ so much. He will be missed – RIP.”

Jenner never recovered after suffering a heart attack in April.
