New Zealand's Sonny Bill Williams was given a second Rugby World Cup winners' medal at Sunday's World Rugby Awards.

Williams famously handed his medal to a young fan in the crowd at Twickenham after the supporter had tried to run on to the field to congratulate the All Blacks centre.

Williams received a standing ovation from the audience at the awards when he went up on stage to accept his new medal.

"World Rugby would like every winner to go home with a medal and they have found the final one," Sky Sports' Alex Payne said prior to Williams going up on stage.

Charlie Lines, the young fan at the centre of this amazing World Cup story, reportedly tried to give the medal back to Williams, who in turn insisted that Lines keep it.
