Wrestler Randy Savage's bad heart caused him to crash his car and die, according to a medical examiner's report.

The fighter, dubbed Macho Man, died after losing control of his car in Tampa, Florida in May and smashing it into a tree.

Reports suggested he suffered a heart attack behind the wheel - and this has now been confirmed by the Pinellas County Medical Examiner.

Savage, real name Randall Mario Poffo, was 58 when he died.

His wife Lynn, who was a passenger in the car, escaped with minor injuries.
