It is believed Oliver, whose body was found on ­Tuesday at 7.45am, fell ill while taking a dip. He ­was wearing swimming goggles.

Oliver, from Coventry, and his family were renting Lindy’s Villa ­Gloria and had been to see a fireworks display the night before.

Police are investigating the death in Mahon, the Spanish island’s capital.

They will report to a court which will decide on any further action.

Lindy told The Sun: “As you can imagine, we were tremendously saddened by this tragic news.

“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the family.”

A source said: “The police report has categorised this as an accidental death awaiting the result of an autopsy.

“Drowning is thought to be the cause. There was no ­evidence of violence or any kind of wrongdoing.”


He added: “A lot of very wealthy people visit the property. It’s luxurious and popular with millionaires.”

Sir Richard and Lindy are close and last year he posted a picture of them enjoying a drink on her birthday in Menorca.

The Foreign Office said it was supporting the family of a British man who had died in Menorca.
