Former WWE wrestler Brodie Lee has died, at the age of 41.
Lee's real name was Jonathan Huber, though he was also known as Luke Harper during his time in the ring with WWE.
His wife confirmed the news on her Instagram page, saying that he died surrounded by loved ones as a result of a lung issue.
She said: "I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken. The world saw him as the amazing Brodie Lee (formerly known as Luke Harper) but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet.
"No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now. He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard fought battle with a non Covid related lung issue."
The WWE released a statement after his death, which said that Huber "found success in every stop of his sports-entertainment career, as his soft spoken yet imposing presence helped him create countless awe-inspiring moments in the ring."
During his time with WWE, he was part of a group with Bray Wyatt, before having a successful solo run.
