New Zealand rugby union legend Jonah Lomu has died at the age of 40.

The winger, who scored 37 tries in 67 matches for his country, had suffered from a rare kidney condition which forced him to retire from the game early.

Greats of the game have been paying their condolences to a man many regard to have been one of the finest to have ever graced a rugby field:

Lomu will perhaps best be remembered for the 1995 World Cup semi-final where he single-handedly destroyed the England team, running in four tries and writing his name into the sport's history books.
