Darren Salter said: ‘Inquiries into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received.
‘As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries.’
Michael, had chart-topping hits including Last Christmas, faith and Freedom and won several Brit, Grammy, GLAAD and American Music awards, but has been battling heart and liver issues the last couple of years.
