The Australian rugby community was in shock after learning that former Wallabies captain Michael Lynagh had collapsed before being taken to hospital.
Twitter went viral tonight when word broke that the 1991 World Cup winning five-eighth had suffered a stroke.
Lynagh is in intensive care at Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital undergoing extensive tests.
Hospital staff would not release any details as the Lynagh family had asked for privacy.
It is understood Lynagh, who had flown in to Brisbane from London last weekend, was taken to hospital after complaining of feeling dizzy while eating dinner with friends on Monday night.
