Jonah Lomu's former teammates and friends delivered a breathtaking farewell Haka at a public memorial service yesterday.
A large crowd gathered at Auckland's Eden Park to honour the memory of the legendary All Blacks winger. As Lomu's coffin arrived at the event, a selection of Lomu's former teammates, colleagues and friends delivered an emotional tribute Haka to the Rugby Legend for the final time.
Lomu was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome, in 1995. Despite the debilitating nature of this illness, Lomu went on to shine for the All Blacks at the 1999 World Cup. He had a kidney transplant in 2004, but the organ stopped functioning in 2011 and he was forced to undergo regular dialysis until his death two weeks ago.
