George Michael died as a result of heart and liver disease, a coroner has confirmed.
The pop star suffered a 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.
The funeral had been put on hold while tests were carried out.
