Omani police are not treating the death of Swedish DJ Avicii as suspicious, who was found dead in the capital Oman on Friday aged just 28.

His management announced on Friday that Avicii - real name Tim Bergling - had passed away in Muscat, but did not reveal the cause of death.

He had been reportedly on holiday in Oman meeting friends, and appeared happy and healthy when seen shortly before the death.

Investigators said that there were no signs of criminal intent in his death.

"Two autopsies were carried out, one yesterday and one today and we absolutely confirmed that there is no criminal suspicion in the death," a source with Oman's Royal Police told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"We have all the information and details regarding the death and this incident," the source said.

He said that the ROP would not be making any public statement on the case.

DJ Avicii was one of the world's most successful announced his retirement from touring amid recurring health scares.

He said the decision was based on health concerns following his hard-partying lifestyle on tour.

The Swedish DJ had spoken publicly in recent years about these problems, including pancreatitis, which was said to be triggered in part by excessive drinking.
