Cape Town - All Black legend Jonah Lomu was a fan of Twitter, posting regular updates to his 79 000-plus followers up until Monday - two days before his sudden death.

Lomu had been in Dubai in the days leading up to his passing, - spending time with his family and friends. 

Lomu passed away on Wednesday morning at the age of 40.
