Nearly two weeks on, the sporting world is still reeling at the loss of Jonah Lomu at the age of just 40 years old.

One of the greatest players the game has ever seen, the exact cause of Lomu’s death has yet to be established, but it is believed he could have suffered a blood clot that developed on a long flight home from the Rugby World Cup earlier this month.

Thousands of people attended a public memorial for Lomu earlier today at Eden Park in Auckland, including several of his former team-mates, who performed a powerful and highly emotional haka to say goodbye to a friend.
