A post-mortem for Michael Mosley has revealed today that the 67-year-old died of 'natural causes'

A Greek journalist has revealed the heartbreaking reason an exact cause of death "cannot be determined" for the TV doctor Michael Mosley, following the results of a post-mortem carried out today.

Greek authorities announced today that the esteemed broadcaster died as a result of "natural causes", noting there were "no signs of injury" on Mosley's body.

Dr Mosley went missing last Wednesday during a holiday to the Greek island of Symi, where he embarked on a solo walk in extreme heat.

Mosley's body was found on Sunday next to a fence surrounding a beach bar after an extensive five-day search. It is claimed that Mosley died around 4pm on Wednesday, the same day he went missing.

Speaking to GB News, Greek Journalist Daphne Tolis revealed that having spoken to the coroner's office, they have stated that following the post-mortem, an exact cause of death "cannot be specified".

Tolis explained: "I spoke to the coroner this morning after the post-mortem, and he told me the cause of death cannot be specified or determined because the body was decayed to an extent that they could not find the exact cause of death."

Tolis added that the coroners made clear Mosley showed "no sign of injury, he hadn't fallen and he hadn't hit his head".

Noting the location of which he was found, Tolis revealed that normally the Agia Marina beach is "only really reachable by boat".

Tolis said: "Marina Beach is only mainly reachable by boat. There is a way you can walk, as it seems that Doctor Michael Mosley did walk, but it's not the usual way.


"It's more like the exception to take this route than the norm, because it's a long hike and the temperatures were indeed extreme that day."

When asked by host Emily Carver about the "terrain" and "environment" of the Symi island where Mosley tragically died, Tolis noted that the island is particularly "rocky, hilly, and not easily walkable".

Tolis told GB News: "It's a small island, very picturesque, very idyllic. But it's also very rocky, very hilly, and there's little shade on this island.

"Although it is a very small island, its terrain is not so easy. It's not so easily walkable. On that day, the heat was extreme - this is something that no human actually can really adjust to, these temperatures, under the intense sun."

Dr Mosley's wife, Dr Clare Bailey Mosley, said on Sunday that her family were "taking comfort in the fact that he so very nearly made it".

In a statement, she said: "He did an incredible climb, took the wrong route and collapsed where he couldn’t be easily seen by the extensive search team.

"We had an incredibly lucky life together. We loved each other very much and were so happy together."
