Irish solicitor Gerald Kean, a spokesman for Gately’s family, said: “There’s no foul play involved and it’s not suicide, according to BBC News.
“It’s just a tragic accident is what we’ve been told and we’re happy that that is correct information.
“There is nothing untoward, it’s not drugs, we don’t believe, it’s not suicide, it’s not murder, it’s not a fight. That’s what we’ve been told.”
The family hope to have the remains returned to Ireland by the end of the week for the funeral in Dublin, he added.
A post mortem will take place in Spain on Tuesday, according to BBC News
