Ireland suffered heartbreak at the Rugby World Cup last night.

Andy Farrell's team lost by 28 points to 24 to New Zealand in the quarter-finals.

The result brings an end to Ireland's 17-match winning run, and also means the wait to progress to the semi-finals for the first time continues.

Last night also brought an end to the career of Irish captain Johnny Sexton.
