Rugby world mourns 'greatest superstar' Jonah Lomu

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.
