Malakai Fekitoa to feature in magazine

Highlanders centre Malakai Fekitoa to feature in ESPN magazine's Body Issue

The yearly publication, which began in 2009, features athletes from across the globe stripped down in an exploration of the athletic body in photographs, with only props from the athlete's sport to cover up. 

Fekitoa will be the first New Zealand athlete to be featured in the magazine, and just the second rugby player in over 200 athletes to take part in the issue since 2009.

United States rugby stalwart Todd Clever, who is the most capped American rugby player in their history, was in the 2015 edition.
