Who won the weekend - Sonny Bill Williams or a Tesco Van Driver?

Still finding remnants of white paint smeared on your face? Still a bit grumpy you showed up to a party dressed as Heath Ledger’s villain from The Dark Knight to find 24 other jokers had done the same?

Who? Sonny Bill Williams

1

Nice guys finish last? Think again. Minutes after winning the Rugby World Cup with New Zealand at Twickenham this Saturday, Sonny Bill Williams – a cross code global rugby star regarded as one of both the best players to play the game, league or union – spotted a young fan being tackled to the ground when an overly officious steward saw him running onto the pitch.

Upon freeing him from the grip of the steward, he went one better, hanging his very own Rugby World Cup winner’s medal around the young man’s neck, no doubt raising the hairs on a million more.

Speaking of the incident, Williams, who was later given another medal, said: "Just before he came to give me a hug he got smoked by one of the security guards and I felt pretty sorry for him you know. If that was a younger brother or cousin I would have given the security guard a hiding you know. But I just picked the kid up and took him back to his old lady and tried to make the night more memorable for him.” We’re not crying, we’ve something in our eye.


Who? supermarket delivery driver Tom Moulton

When Tesco van driver Tom Moulton tentatively sat down to play the piano in a Leicester shopping centre this weekend, unsure if he could tinkle the ivories, his mum convinced him to have a go. Every little helps, we guess, and she was certainly right to encourage him as the 22-year-old produced a stunning rendition of Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On, filmed by his mother and shared by hundreds of thousands of people over Facebook. Listen closely and you can also hear her telling all the onlookers wandering over that her son is self-taught. Yep, it turned out Moulton can’t read music and instead learnt to play by copying film soundtracks, which, if you ask us, has paid off handsomely. A titanic effort.
