The moment a child was tackled - before having his day made by Sonny Bill Williams (Video)

What a crazy few minutes for this youngster.

First, Charlie Lines was tackled by a security guard when he tried to run onto the pitch after the final whistle of Saturday's Rugby World Cup final.

Charlie was trying to get a photograph or autograph with some of his rugby heroes after New Zealand beat Australia 34-17 at Twickenham.

Seconds after hitting the ground, though, the disappointment turned to joy as Sonny Bill Williams picked the young lad up and dusted him off.

Williams guided Charlie back to his seat, placed his winner's medal around the youngster's neck and posed for pictures with him, cementing his place as one of the classiest guys in rugby.
