He died doing something he loved. The words of the friends of Jason Laman - who collapsed while playing for his local Wheatley Rugby Club in Oxfordshire. The fly-half, was about to take a kick for his side, when he suddenly fell down.

Sion Donovan reports on the man who'll be remembered - as a true gent. The report contains tributes from Jason's father Clive Laman, his team mate James Pollard and club chairman Peter Ramsdale.

Jason is also remembered by his wife Rayner, his children Chloe, Aarom and Abbie, his mother Margaret and his brother Adam and his family in Australia.
