67-capped French former winger Christophe Dominici has passed away at the age of 48.
Dominici started his professional career with French club La Valette before signing for Toulon in 1993.
Dominici burst onto the international scene in 1998 with a try-scoring debut against England. The following year, he lit up the 1999 Rugby World Cup with his pace, particularly in the semi-final win against the All Blacks.
À seulement 48 ans, l'ancien ailier et légende du XV de France Christophe Dominici (67 sélections) est décédé brutalement ce mardi. Un choc terrible pour l'ensemble du rugby français, et planétaire. Nos premières pensées vont à sa famille.https://t.co/GlrGCz6g3G— RUGBYRAMA (@RugbyramaFR) November 24, 2020
