Chaleo Yoovidhya formulated the drink - Krathing Daeng, which translates to 'Red Bull' in English - in the 70s, before co-founding a company with Austrian Dietrich Mateschitz in 1984.

Thai state media MCOT on Saturday said billionaire Yoovidhya, 89, died of natural causes.

Billionaire Mateschitz owns the Red Bull and Toro Rosso Formula One teams.
