Police believe Dr Michael Mosley died of heat exhaustion after sitting to rest before losing consciousness

Dr Michael Mosley died of heat exhaustion after sitting down to rest on a rocky slope before losing consciousness as temperatures hit 40C, police believe.

The 67-year-old Mail health guru was found on a mountain side five days after he disappeared while on holiday with his wife on the Greek island of Symi on Wednesday.

His body lay alongside a low wall at the Agia beach resort, with CCTV showing that he was only a minute away from safety.

A post mortem yesterday proved inconclusive with the coroner only saying foul play had been ruled out.

But a police commander in Symi, Dimos Kotsidaras, said it is believed ‘the cause of death was heat exhaustion after walking from St Nikolos to Agia Marina in high temperatures’.

Initially it was assumed he slipped and struck his head after succumbing to the heat during a two-hour hike over mountains.

But police sources said that analysis of film shows he although he appeared disoriented, he did not fall, walking backwards and forwards along the resort’s high perimeter fence for almost five minutes.
