New Zealand rugby union legend Jonah Lomu has passed away aged 40.
Lomu, who scored 37 tries in 63 tests for the All Blacks between 1994 and 2002, retired due to a rare kidney condition before receiving a first kidney transplant in 2004.
However, the kidney stopped working in October 2011 and Lomu had been on dialysis ever since.
New Zealand Rugby chief executive Steve Tew said: “We’re shocked and saddened. Jonah was a legend of our game and loved by his many fans both here and around the world.
“We’re lost for words and our heartfelt sympathies go out to Jonah’s family.”
