Sonny Bill Williams has been presented with a new Rugby World Cup winners medal after he gifted his to a young fan after the final yesterday.

The All Blacks midfielder said he had felt sorry for young fan Charlie Line, who had been tackled by a security guard as he ran onto the pitch at Twickenham, and wanted to make the occasion a "night to remember" for the youth.

But tournament organisers managed to "find a replacement" for two-time World Champion Sonny Bill, 30, and presented him with it at the World Rugby Awards tonight.
