Jamie Peacock, who played for Leeds Rhinos and England alongside Burrow, said he was “an inspiration to us all”.

“The world outside of rugby league got to witness first-hand your courage, bravery, grit and sense of humour in the most difficult of situations in your inspirational battle with this brutal disease.”

Barrie McDermott said Burrow’s humour was one of the main things he would remember about him.

“The world will never forget Rob Burrow he is a hero to so many people and an inspiration to all who were lucky enough to meet him or came across his story on and off the pitch.

“He made me dance like MJ & run when I hate doing both but mainly he made me laugh out loud.

“He was brave beyond words in these last few months he has taught me so much about courage, kindness and love.”

‘Rob was our hero’ say fans at Rhinos’ stadium

I’m here at AMT Headingley Rugby Stadium in Leeds, where rugby fans and locals are leaving tributes to Rob Burrow.

It’s silent as people gather to pay their respects. Some young fans are emotional, crying as they leave their tributes.

“He was our hero. He was the heart and soul of the game. He meant everything to us,” one local fan, Bev, said.

Another fan at the site, Josh, said: “Everything he did for research and awareness was incredible. We will all miss him.”

Kevin Sinfield is here quietly paying respects and Rob’s family and parents have just laid flowers. They are wearing their hoodies, campaigning to find a cure for MND.

People gave a round of applause as his parents arrived.

Now, each of the Leeds Rhinos players are here and are greeting Rob’s mum with hugs. They have all gathered around the memorial in tribute.
