Watch: Sonny Bill Williams gives 14 yr old his World Cup medal

Watch as Sonny Bill Williams gives World Cup medal to stunned 14-year-old fan

New Zealand’s Sonny Bill Williams gives away his Rugby World Cup winner’s medal after seeing 14-year-old Charlie Lines get rugby tackled by a security guard as he ran on the pitch during the All Blacks’ lap of honour.

In a video posted on ALMA Rugby’s YouTube channel, Williams hugs the boy and walks him back into the stands where he takes off his medal and hangs it around Lines’ neck.

Williams later said he felt sorry for the ‘little fella’ and that he wanted to make the night more memorable for him.

More to come on the weekend’s sports soon.
