Sonny Bill Williams makes pilgrimage to Muslim holy city Mecca

All Black centre Sonny Bill Williams has taken some time off ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby season and has made a trip to Mecca.

The 32-year-old rugby union star converted to Islam in 2009 and visiting Mecca is a trip that Muslims, who are able, must perform at least once in their lifetime.

Photographed in front of the sacred black stone, Williams posted the image below on his Instagram account before adding the caption: Umrah 2018. Peace & ❤️ my friends
