Adelaide Crows vice-captain Rory Sloane has paid tribute to his still born on Leo Rory Sloane in a heartfelt Instagram post.
"Last week we said goodbye to our beautiful little man," the post read.
"Leo Rory Sloane was born into the world still, but perfect. Thanks for making us the proudest parents and filling our hearts with love beyond measure, the moments we had with you are now beautiful memories that will last a lifetime."
Rory and his wife Belinda announced they were expecting their first child in April this year.
Last week Rory withdrew from the Crows' last game of the season against Carlton due to a private family matter.
