All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu has passed away in Auckland today at the age of 40.
Former All Blacks doctor John Mayhew confirmed Lomu had died unexpectedly this morning.
“On behalf of the Lomu family, I can confirm that Jonah Lomu died this morning, most probably about 8 or 9 this morning” Mayhew said.
“The family are obviously devastated, as are friends and acquaintances.
“The family have requested privacy at this stage, they are obviously going through a terrible time.
“It was totally unexpected. Jonah and his family arrived back from the United Kingdom last night and he suddenly died this morning.”
Lomu had been in the United Kingdom with his family as a spokesman for Heineken during the Rugby World Cup
