Rugby legend Jonah Lomu was honoured with a song performed by the children of his former primary school at today’s Eden Park service.

Broadcaster John Campbell introduced the performance by the Favona Primary School, saying it was a school where Jonah was “distinguished by his kindness as well as athletic ability”.
“Favona is very proud of Jonah and very sad about his passing,” he says.
