Video footage of former New Zealand rugby player Jerry Collins final haka is the most fitting way to remember the legend yet.
The tear-jerking video shows Collins perform the haka for the last time with his famous smile on his face.
Collins and his wife Alana tragically died in a car accident in France on Friday while their three-month-old daughter Ayla is in a critical condition.
Tributes have poured in far and wide for Collins but possibly none as unique as the tribute paid by former Toulon team mate Chris Masoe.
Masoe bleached his hair blond in honour of Collins' well-known style and inscribed on tape on his lower right arm “RIP JC… Love you brother”.
