Thames Valley Police originally said his death was unexplained but not suspicious and an initial post-mortem examination was “inconclusive”.

The coroner said in a statement: “Inquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received. No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
