Global rugby star, Sonny Bill Williams, has been labelled a jack of all trades for his versatility in the sporting world.
Williams made his name in the sport of rugby league but then switched over to rugby union a few years ago.
He then took the controversial decision to try his hand at boxing as well – with limited success.
Now, Williams has another feather in his cap following his graduation from Otago Polytechnic.
The New Zealander, who won the world cup with the All Blacks, graduated with a degree in Applied (Sport) Management with distinction.
He took to social media to share the news via twitter and included an inspirational message.
Briefly.co.za admired the popularity of the post as it attracted 15 000 likes on Wednesday alone.
Williams converted to Islam a few years ago and some tweeps noted the timing during the holy month of Ramadaan.
Hundreds of comments poured in to congratulate the multi-talented sportsman.
