Tributes have been pouring in from all over the rugby world as we mourn the death of Munster and Ireland legend, Anthony Foley.
The former Shannon flanker was tragically found dead in his hotel room overnight as Munster prepared for their Champions Cup opener with French side Racing 92.
The game has since been called off as a mark of respect as the rugby world try’s to come to terms with the loss of one of it’s most fabled sons at the tender age of 42.
Here’s a sample of some of the wonderful tributes that have been pouring in. A mark of a true legend.
