Bob Saget may have passed away from a sudden medical emergency such as a heart attack or a stroke, according to reports.

The late comic – who was know for his role in the 90's sitcom Full House – was found by Ritz-Carlton Orlando hotel security staff on Sunday afternoon.

Now, TMZ claims the actor was found lying face-up on the bed with his left arm resting on his chest as his right arm lay beside him.

After the star was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities believe the cause of his death could be a heart attack, the outlet claimed.

It is believed officers working on the investigation have already ruled out foul play and don't believe drugs were involved in his passing.

The Sheriff's Department and the fire department were the first to respond to the hotel who called for aid at around 4pm.

The 65-year-old – who had performed a show in Jacksonville on Saturday night – reportedly returned to his hotel room at 2.17am.

Investigators went on to say the room showed no signs of a disturbance or issue during the night.

It comes after the Orange County Sheriff's Office issued a statement announcing the news of the star's sudden passing.

It read: "Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room.

"The man was identified as Robert Saget and pronounced dead on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case."
