FORMER ALL Blacks wing Jonah Lomu is into his fourth day in hospital, but fans still don’t know what is wrong with him.
His family are continuing to remain silent on what is ailing the 36-year-old.
“We don't wish to make further comment at this stage,” his wife, Nadene Lomu, told Fairfax media this morning.
Lomu was admitted to Auckland Hospital’s renal unit in the kidney and liver transplant wing on Saturday.
He was in a stable `condition`, but it was unknown how long he would remain in care.
News of his plight dominated rugby websites and news services around the world on the weekend.
Lomu was diagnosed with the debilitating kidney disorder nephrotic syndrome in 1995.
Facing a shortened life on dialysis, Wellington radio announcer Grant Kereama donated a kidney to him in 2004.
Last month he announced he would fight Warriors wing Manu Vatuvei in the boxing ring as part of charity event Fight For Life.
The match was set to be held on December 3.« Back to Archives
