All Blacks Star Jonah Lomu dies suddenly

I have just heard on the news that All Blacks rugby legend Jonah Lomu died suddenly today. He was 40 years of age. He had suffered with a rare kidney disease for years (even when playing rugby) Despite this he was in England with his family during the last Rugby World Cup.

R.I.P Jonah. A true giant of a man

I was shocked when I realised how long he had suffered with this rare kidney disease and played on regardless. Apparently there was no indication he was poorly yesterday. His death was sudden and unexpected

Very surprised to read that this morning. When he was in his sporting prime they were trying to entice him to play American football. Sad news.

Seeing him do the Haka was the first time I had ever seen it. I'll always remember that, and him.

Four tries in one game against England in a world cup game. I seem to r ember him walking over the England defence that game. Awesome!
