Rest in peace.
Legendary former France playmaker Christophe Dominici has died suddenly at the age of just 48 near his home in Paris, police and other sources said on Tuesday.
Dominici, a huge fan-favourite across the globe famous for his entertaining brand of rugby, played for France 67 times and scored 25 tries for his country in a storied career.
He helped Les Bleus to two Grand Slams and played in three Rugby World Cups, famously scoring a try against the All Blacks as France defeated them in the semi-finals of the 1999 World Cup.
At club level, Dominici starred for both Toulon and Stade Français. He won five Top 14 titles with Stade Français and helped them to two Heineken Cup finals.
Another legend of the game taken from us far too soon.
