Sonny Bill Williams has been awarded another World Cup winners medal after he gave his own to a fan following New Zealand’s triumph over Australia.

Williams - who had received his medal along with the rest of the All Black squad - handed it to 14-year-old Charles Lines after yesterday's final.

The young boy had been knocked to the ground by a member of the security staff as he tried the reach the centre on to the Twickenham turf.

However, at last night’s World Rugby Awards, Williams received a standing ovation as he was presented with a new medal.
