England head coach Eddie Jones has paid tribute to “phenomenal human being” Captain Tom Moore.
The 99-year-old army veteran, who served in India and Burman, completed the 100th lap of his garden yesterday and raised more than £24m for NHS Charities Together.
Captain Moore had set out to walk 10 laps of his garden every day until he reached 100, prior to his 100th birthday at the end of the month.
Jones sent the following video message to Tom on Twitter.
LIST | The inspirational rugby union players who’ve come out as gay
Can we get a ‘love is love’ up in here?
Here, we round up the rugby players who’ve bravely came out to inspire a whole new generation of LGBTQ youth.

He is one of the greatest rugby players in the history of the UK, captaining the Welsh international side as well as the British and Irish Lions during his career.
Thomas publicly came out in 2009 and has since described his experience as a secretly gay player, revealing how the social pressure and stereotypes pose a significant challenge for many athletes today.
