An autopsy has confirmed that actor James Gandolfini died Wednesday of a heart attack, a hospital source told Reuters early Friday morning.

The source, who asked not to be identified, added that Rome’s Umberto I hospital planned to announce the results later today after officially informing the U.S. embassy and family members.

The Sopranos star was found collapsed in the bathroom of his hotel room on Wednesday by his 13-year-old son, Michael. Doctors tried to resuscitate the actor for 40 minutes before pronouncing him dead, according to Reuters.
