Referee Nigel Owens puts crude Twitter troll in his place

Rugby referee Nigel Owen gave an excellent demonstration on how to respond to Twitter abuse on his own social network account yesterday.
The popular Welsh whistler is a frequent Twitter user and known for his engagement with fans. Similar to many high-profile figures on social media, Owens is on occasions on the receiving of stinging abuse, with one Twitter troll over-stepping the mark with a crude question.
Owens' response was quickly shared by fellow users before the original tweet was deleted by the embarrassed user.
