Nigerian-Born Rugby Youngster Adeniran-Olule Dies In Car Crash

England Under-20 international Seb Adeniran-Olule, who has Nigerian heritage, has tragically lost his life in a car accident, his rugby club Harlequins announced on Wednesday.


In a statement on the club's website the 20-year-old Adeniran-Olule is described as 'one of the club’s most promising youngsters' who had been involved with them since the age of 13.


Conor O'Shea, Harlequins Director of Rugby, was quoted in the Mail as daying: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Seb's family and friends at this difficult time. 


 "He was one of the most skilful players in his position I have ever seen. He always played the game with a big smile on his face and could do some phenomenal things with the ball.


"As a character he was quiet, had incredible work rate, was popular and first to learn.


"On the pitch he would get you off your seat and as a front-row player that is fairly rare. He had some outstanding moments with the ball in hand. 


"He should be remembered as a great kid, I loved coaching him. It's a tragic loss."
