Australian rugby league star Jared Hayne has quit the sport in order to pursue a career in the NFL.
The Australian international won the National Rugby League's highest individual accolade - the Dally M Medal - for a second time just last month, and has been given a conditional release by his club, the Parramatta Eels, in order to follow his NFL dream.
