The RFL Benevolent Fund confirmed the tragic news after Cox, who was just 27, died at his home in Hull.
The announcement followed a wave of tributes from across the world of rugby league, among them, many of his former team-mates from his days at Warrington and Hull KR.
“Coxy we always smiled and laughed sometimes too much,” said former Robins team-mate and friend Kieran Dixon.
