England and Bristol Bears prop Kyle Sinckler produced an incredibly emotional post-match interview after Saturday’s Premiership win against Bath.
The 28-year-old was asked about his shock exclusion from the British & Irish Lions squad earlier in the week and broke down with emotion in front of the cameras.

“I don’t think I’ve seen Kyle like that because he’s probably never hurt like that before.” @ugomonye almost brought to tears following Kyle Sinckler’s incredibly honest interview.

Most of all, respect @KyleSinckler for being powerful, dominant, beastly, and utterly open and vulnerable at the same time. A true example.
