The All Blacks have been immortalised by a French artist who is using his unique drawing skills to share his passion for rugby.

Based in Paris, Thomos Novo is a huge rugby fan who produces caricatures of some of his favourite players.

Each drawing takes between two and three hours to produce and he shares them on social media to rugby fans around the world.

Describing the All Blacks, he says: "They are just magical, when you look at them it just looks like rugby is easy."

The All Blacks are also a fan of his pictures - and sent him a signed jersey to show their appreciation.

Novo's most recent work is a caricature of All Black and Chiefs star Liam Messam as Iron man.

Messam is a big fan of his work.

"Thanks to my man @drawnowo for this awesome work," he said. "The Iron man hulk busta is my son's favourite character. Can't wait to show him that his dad is Iron man."
