Fiji sevens coach Ryan lands another honour


Fiji's rugby sevens coach Ben Ryan has been gifted three acres of land after leading the country to a first Olympic medal.

Ryan guided Fiji's men's sevens team to gold at Rio 2016, the Olympic title secured with an empathic 43-7 victory over Great Britain.

He plans to step down from the role but Ryan was awarded the island nation's highest honour - the Companion of the Order of Fiji - this month.

And he was honoured again at a ceremony in the province of Serua, where was given the land and the name of Ratu Peni Raiyani Latianara
