One can only imagine the grief and disbelief in the Munster camp following the untimely death of their head coach Anthony Foley.

It is understood that the 42-year-old Clare native failed to make a 9am team meeting in Paris ahead of the clash with Racing 92 and that lead to the grim discovery.

The game was postponed and rugby community in Ireland was thrust into mourning when the awful news broke yesterday afternoon.

His family, friends, fans, former team mates and young players who were honing their craft under Foley's watchful eye have been left stunned.

Current winger Simon Zebo took to Twitter this afternoon to pay homage and used a famous quote from Babe Ruth to illustrate the high affection he had for Foley.

He wrote: "Some incredible memories with an incredible man that will never be forgotten..Heroes Get Remembered,But Legends Never Die..#RIPAxel"
