London - All Black centre Sonny Bill Williams was on Sunday presented with a new World Cup winners' medal to replace the one he handed to a young fan after Saturday's final victory over Australia.
The boy, identified as 15-year-old Charlie Lines, was thrown to the ground by a security official after running on to the Twickenham pitch following New Zealand's 34-17 triumph.
"I am sure that he'll remember it. I'm happy that he has it because I know that he will really appreciate it," Williams said at Sunday's World Player of the Year awards.
The 30-year-old Williams played down the incident which also saw team-mate and flank Liam Meesam give the teenager his black beanie hat.
"I'm really surprised, most of the boys would have done the same," Williams said.
