Standing ovation for Sonny Bill Williams as he accepts new World Cup winners medal
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.
