French rugby legend Christophe Dominici died.

Former French rugby international Christophe Dominici has been found dead at the age of 48 in a park near Paris.

Dominici, who played 67 times for France, was 1.72m and 82kg scored 25 tries in 67 Tests for France, including eight tries across three World Cups. 

He had a deceptive change of pace and a shimmy that could lose and confuse defenders.

His most celebrated moment came in the 1999 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand when his second-half try, grabbing a bouncing ball one-handed and then skating down the left touchline, put the French ahead as they reached the final with a remarkable comeback. 

After he retired, then-national coach Bernard Laporte gave Dominici a coaching role. He also worked as a media pundit.

The French Rugby Federation said Dominici had "left his imprint on an entire generation of rugby".
