Tributes are pouring in for Nelson Mandela from the world of rugby. International rugby referee Nigel Owens met Mandela. He said it was an "honour" and a privilege" to meet him.
Very sad to hear that Nelson Mandela has passed away. Had the honour and privilege of meeting and shaking the greatest of men hand
Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela. We will never forget the role you played in our country, in our sport, and for that we are eternally grateful.
Had the honour of meeting the great man before the South Africa 2004 Match. A moment I will never forget, RIP Nelson Mandela #icon
