NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 3/03/2016

Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has paid a touching tribute following the death of his cousin, New Zealand cricket legend Martin Crowe.

The actor took to social media to express his sadness after the announcement of Crowe's death from cancer at the age of 53 on Thursday.

"My champion, my hero, my friend. I will love you forever," he tweeted along with a picture of Martin.

Despite living in separate countries, the two remained close, even spending New Year's Day in 2015 together at Russell's farm in New South Wales.

Martin Crowe was also a board member of the South Sydney Rabbitohs League team - which Russell is a part owner of.
