Jonah Lomu's widow has written a touching Mother's Day tribute.

In a message on Facebook, Nadene Lomu yesterday wrote: "From our little men and I, we hope each and every mother out there has had a wonderful Mothers Day and if it's tomorrow for you, then we wish you the most blessed and love filled day of joy and happiness too.

From our little men and I, we hope each and every mother out there has had a wonderful Mothers Day and if it's tomorrow...

"Happy Mothers Day to all the special ladies around the globe that give endless love and kindness to the ones most dearest to your hearts," she continued.

"To my mum, my little family and I will always be thankful for the love and support you have been to us and for the many wonderful memories we shared together with our daddy angel."
