The past 7 days has seen the loss of 2 top level sportsmen; last night saw the death of All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu whilst former Premier League Goalkeeper Martin Fulop passed just 6 days ago on Thursday 12th November.

Jonah Lomu, 40, who was once one of the most iconic figures in Rugby, died unexpectedly overnight. He had been forced to retire due to a rare kidney disease; it is yet to be confirmed whether that has any relation to his death.

Former Premier League Goalkeeper Martin Fulop, who made appearances for Fulham, Sunderland and more notably Tottenham Hotspur lost his battle with cancer at the age of 32. The Hungarian hoped to return to action but his last appearance was over 2 years ago.

London Greek Radio would like to send their condolences to the respective friends and families of these sporting heroes and are deeply saddened by the loss of two such legends.
