"I can confirm that the incident took place at a quarter past nine on Saturday," The Telegraph quoted van Wyk, as saying.

"A 55-year-old British citizen was found dead in a hotel room in Newlands, Cape Town. He was working as a cricket commentator for an Australian publication. He committed suicide. An inquest docket has been opened for investigation. I cannot say more at the moment."
