Rugby star swaps boots for bodybuilding

Former All Black Jonah Lomu has made his debut as a bodybuilder in an amateur competition in Wellington.

The 34-year-old, once the most feared man in world rugby, is planning a rugby comeback with Marseille and opted to try bodybuilding as a way of getting back into shape.

He showed some impressive moves and did enough to qualify for next month's national championships.
