Federici and Jedinak pay touching tributes to compatriot Phillip Hughes
The Australian rugby team also paid their respects at Twickenham.

OVER THE PAST few days, the sporting world has been united in grief after the tragic death of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes, who died at the age of 25 on Thursday.

Yesterday, the #putouryourbats campaign went viral as fans and sports stars joined together to pay their respect to Hughes by posting pictures of their cricket bats.

Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici and Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak – both Australian internationals – led the tributes this afternoon with touching tributes.

Federici placed a cricket bat in his net before the Royals’ Championship game against Norwich at Carrow Road while Jedinak placed his bat and a Crystal Palace cap in the centre circle at the Liberty Stadium, where the Eagles were in action.
