The man was already a legend in rugby fans’ eyes before the Rugby World Cup final but what he’s done since has just shown what a great character Sonny Bill Williams is.
After giving his medal to a young fan just after security had caught him, SBW earned his place in World Cup final folklore for going beyond his on-field duties.
The All Black has since been handed a new medal by World Rugby following his selfless gesture to that young supporter.
But just when we thought we had witnessed enough of the man’s generosity, he’s gone and posted a picture of Charlie Lines next to him bearing the original winner’s medal he gave away after defeating Australia.
While the World Cup will be remembered for its brilliant pieces of play and classic moments, stories such as these should not go under the radar either.
Check out SBW and Lines photographed together below.
