Daniel Adongo was the toast of the town 7 years ago when news travelled back home that he had been signed by American NFL team, the Indianapolis Colts.
But it all came tumbling down afterward when he was accused of domestic violence. And since then not much had been heard about him but that changed yesterday.
A viral video shared online by controversial blogger Robert Alai shows the sportsman in what looks to be a deplorable mental state.
On his official Facebook page, Adongo has posted more of the same that paints a sad picture of one of Kenya’s most gifted physical specimens.
Remember your rugby hunk Daniel Adongo? He got into drugs and some weird beliefs.
This is him currently.

Rumours are that his state of affairs changed after he was cut by the Indianapolis Colts in 2015. This came after news emerged that he was being investigated for domestic violence.
Consequently, the incident cost the linebacker playing time, leading his team (Colts) to waive him one week after the second police call on December 10, 2015, and ruled out of the match against Jacksonville.
It was claimed that a woman was afraid of Adongo and did not want him to return to his residence but “was not forthcoming with any information in reference to these incidents,” according to the police report, then.
The woman claimed that arguments had occurred over the past several months in 2015. Adongo went to the Fishers Police Department while officers were speaking with the woman and said he would not stay at the home that evening and was going to end the relationship, according to the police report.
