All Black’s legend Jonah Lomu has been admitted to hospital.
The winger was diagnosed with kidney disorder Niphrotic syndrome in 1995, and had to have a transplant in 2004.
His wife Nadine has said that he is in a stable condition, but will not comment further until they know exactly what is wrong with him.
Despite the fact that he has not played an international game since 2002, Lomu remains perhaps the most iconic All Black player.
The 36-year-old combined the strength of a burley forward and the pace of a flying winger to score 37 tries in 63 test appearences, and still holds the record of being the leading try scorer after claiming 15 over the 1995 and 1999 tournaments.
