People line streets in tribute to Foley outside Munster’s Thomond Park

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Limerick to pay tribute to Munster head coach Anthony Foley, who died on Saturday at the age of 42.

Foley won 62 Ireland caps and made 201 appearances in the back row for Munster, leading them to their first European Cup triumph in 2006.

He died at a hotel in Paris, where Munster were staying before Sunday’s scheduled game against Racing 92, after a heart condition caused fluid to build up in his lungs.

Listen to or download the 5 live Sport special programme – Anthony Foley: The Munster Man from 19:30 BST on Thursday 20 October. BBC Sport’s Tom Fordyce has been to Limerick to find out how the death of a sporting hero can affect a community.
