Sonny Bill Williams has posted a heartwarming, and flatulent, video of him and his daughter following his sending off from Saturday’s face-off between the All Blacks and the Lions.

Williams became the first All Black to be sent off in 50 years after a dangerous shoulder charge on British and Irish Lions winger Anthony Watson.

After the game, the 31-year-old was handed a four-week ban, and a statement released on Twitter by the All Blacks said he had apologised to Watson and felt he had “let my brothers down”.

Understandably, Williams is probably not feeling great about his mistake at the moment, but according to his Twitter account, his wife Alana took it upon herself to cheer him up – sending him a hilarious video.

The tweet read: “My wife sent this to me today. ‘Smile, sh** happens, just like Imaans farts’.” The accompanying video showed Williams’ daughter Imaan in bed with the rugby superstar looking adorably sleepy.

Just when the video is at peak cute, the sound of a fart can be heard rippling across the bedroom. Williams blames his gorgeous daughter, saying “Imaan, you do a stinky fart!” the video finishes with a knowing smile from Imaan as she rolls over to face the music.

Fans rushed to reply to the video, showing their support for Williams.

Even Lions fans overlooked the rivalry to let Williams know they were behind him.

Next time you get in trouble at work, try posting a video of a cute kid – you just might get away with it.
