Williams, a rugby star-turned-boxer, 37, converted to Islam 14 years ago while playing for Toulon in France after a period in his life where he was “wild”.

He met his wife, Alana Raffie, at a retail shop in 2013 and the pair married only four weeks later. Ever since, he has admitted that she makes him strive ‘to be the best husband I could be’.

Last year, he published his autobiography, “Sonny Bill Williams: You can’t stop the sun from shining.” In this book, Williams described how he turned to a life of partying in an effort to hide a shy insecure young man who suddenly shot to fame in the rugby world.
