A post-mortem examination was carried out earlier today on 67-year-old Russian national Boris Berezovsky, who was found dead at a residential property in Mill Lane, Ascot, on Saturday.
The results of the post-mortem examination, carried out by a Home Office pathologist, have found the cause of death is consistent with hanging. The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a violent struggle.
Further tests will now be carried out, including toxicology and histology examinations, the results of which are likely to take several weeks.
A forensic examination of the property in Ascot, which is being carried out by Scenes of Crime Officers, will continue for several days and a cordon will remain in place until these have been completed.
How Boris Berezovsky died is still being investigated, although his Berkshire mansion has been declared safe by radiation experts.
Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky has died at the age of 67.
