TWITTER REACTION: Rugby community remembers Nelson Mandela

The passing of Nelson Mandela at age 95 has resonated throughout the world.

The iconic leader famously championed sport as a vehicle of inspiration and social change.

"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair."

Here is some reaction to Madiba's passing from the rugby community. May he rest in peace.
