Rugby Union fans are shocked after the sudden death of former New Zealand All Blacks left-winger Jonah Lomu.
Lomu is survived by his third wife, Nadine, 5-year-old son Dhyreille, and 6-year-old son Brayley.
Despite his health problems Lomu remained active, and had just returned from an ambassador role at the Rugby World Cup in England with his family.
Lomu spoke of his pride at being able to perform the haka in front his sons with members of the Ngati Ranana Maori Club in Covent Garden in September.
Lomu also spoke about wanting to see his sons grow up.
New Zealand Rugby CEO Steve Tew has described him as one of the legends of the game.
New Zealand prime minister John Key also offered his condolences.
There's been an outpouring of grief on social media from members of the rugby community as players remember him as a thrilling player and a great role model.
