Former Australia lock Dan Vickerman has died at the age of 37, the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) has confirmed.

South Africa-born Vickerman played 63 Tests for Australia after his 2002 debut and featured in three World Cups.

"The rugby world is in shock after news of the tragic passing of Dan Vickerman. He was an enforcer on the field and a much-loved character off the field," said ARU chief executive Bill Pulver.

No details of the cause of death have been disclosed.

Way too young, RIP.

Suicide is usually because of depression, which can be from a host of different things. It's a huge problem throughout the world, but we don't really do bugger all about it.
