ROB Burrow has died at the age of 41, his former club Leeds Rhinos have announced.

Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019, just two years after retiring from a 17-season rugby league career.

He won eight Super League titles in his playing career with Leeds, two Challenge Cups and three World Club Challenges.

After his diagnosis with the illness, Burrow dedicated himself to raising awareness and funds for the MND community with the support of close friend and former Leeds team-mate Kevin Sinfield.
