George Michael's initial autopsy has been "inconclusive," police have said, and further tests will be carried out to figure out his cause of death.

According to a statement released to the media by the Thames Valley police, "The cause of death is inconclusive and further tests will now be carried out. The results of the tests are unlikely to be known for several weeks."

Michael's death on Christmas Day is being treated as "unexplained but not suspicious."
