Melbourne: Former Australian leg spinner Shane Warne is warming up for a large coming-of-age party in Melbourne with his wide variety of mates.
The eternally young, if slightly hairless, sportsman will reach his 40th birthday on Sunday week, but Warne is planning to celebrate a couple of days early with a big bash for celebrity mates in trendy South Yarra tomorrow week.
The cricket great has booked a Chapel St bar for the event.
Invitations have gone out to an extensive list of well-known identities, including TVs Eddie McGuire, ex-boxer Jeff Fenech, poker player Joe Hachem and AFL stars Brendan Fevola and Aaron Hamill.
Warne and his ex-wife turned girlfriend Simone Callahan were spotted cruising around Brighton this week in the sportsmans head-turning black Lamborghini Superleggera.
The pair has been low-key since she moved in with him last year.
