George Michael died as a result of heart and liver disease, a coroner has confirmed.
The pop star was suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, according to Darren Salter, senior coroner for Oxfordshire.
The singer died aged 53 on Christmas Day at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Because there was a “natural cause of death”, the coroner said there was no need for an inquest.
Thames Valley Police originally said his death was unexplained but not suspicious and an initial post-mortem examination was “inconclusive”.
On Tuesday, the coroner said in a statement: “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.
“No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
