Watch Why Sonny Bill Williams Gave His Winners Medal To Young Fan

Sonny Bill Williams gave his World Cup Winners Medal to Charlie Lines after the final.

In the aftermath of the World Cup Final, images emerged of Sonny Bill Williams handing his winners medal over to young fan, Charlie Lines.

Supporters across the rugby world applauded the selfless actions of the offloading centre, with many wondering what motivated Williams. However footage has since emerged of a security guard tackling young Charlie Lines to the ground as he raced onto the pitch to congratulate his World Cup winning heroes.

Upon witnessing the rough treatment dished out to the boy, Williams ensured young Charlie was alright before introducing him to Steve Hansen and escorting him back to his seat.

It was at that moment that Williams gave Charlie his medal.
