All Blacks and Fiji wing Joeli Vidiri has died aged 48

His death came less than 24 hours after the death of another former All Black and Blues winger Va’aiga Tuigamala.
Super Rugby franchise, the Blues, announced on Friday saying
“With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Joeli Vidiri, aged 48,” the Blues said on Twitter.
“G.O.A.T is used frequently these days, more than it should. In the case of Joeli the title truly fits. One of the greatest players of all time.”

Vidiri made seven appearances for Fiji before moving to New Zealand and playing 62 games for the Blues and two Tests in 1998 for the All Blacks.
