The 27-year-old flanker was filmed engaging with fans after Los Pumas earned a draw with Australia at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle when he approached a young Argentine supporter.

Matera embraced the kid, who was reduced to tears in awe of Argentina’s captain, and then decided to give the youngster his match shirt. The footage was uploaded to Twitter before All Blacks legend Dan Carter took the clip viral.

Los Pumas drew 15-15 with the Wallabies meaning all three teams in this year’s Tri Nations currently sit on six points, with Argentina cherishing a game in-hand. Full Match highlights are available below:
