Almost six years on from the 2015 World Cup final, we look back at a famous moment in Sonny Bill Williams career. Shortly after the presentation a fan ran on the pitch before being tackled by security. What happened next changed a young man’s life and is remembered as one of the incredible moments in World Cup history, as SBW gave away his winners medal.

SBW is a gent, and it seems a truly great person. He is one of the few ppl of faith whom I find to be real. No duplicity. He tries his best to be real. Class act.
