New Zealand rugby union legend Jonah Lomu has died at the age of 40.

The winger, who scored 37 tries in 63 caps for the All Blacks, had suffered from health problems since nephrotic syndrome, a rare degenerative kidney disease, forced him to bow out of international rugby in 2002.

Me too, didn't see that one coming. I'm always wary of bandying the word "genius" around but few can claim to be as significant in the history of popular music as Bowie.

I always remember as a 15-year old lad being bowled over by Bowie's first big impact on the music world with "Space Oddity" in 1969. On his first album is a track called "Letter To Hermione" which still stands the test of time and should resonate with anyone who thinks back to their first love(s).

There's been an awful ot of deaths in music/entertainment this year already.
I don't think anybody's mentioned Glen Frey and Paul Kantner.
There's also been the authors of two of the great 20th century novels,Harper Lee and Umberto Eco.
Spare a thought for Cliff Michelmore who was everywhere on the BBC when I was growing up but lived long enough to be largely forgotten. I think he died on the same day as Paul Daniels and he hardly got a mention.
