Jonathan Davies has been named player of the tour by his British and Irish Lions team-mates.

Wales international centre Davies played every minute of the three Tests against New Zealand, the last of which ended 15-15 on Saturday and resulted in a drawn series.

It was the 29-year-old's second tour with Lions having been a key part of the 2-1 victory over Australia in 2013, when he was also an ever-present.

Davies was a stand-out player in all three Tests against the All Blacks and was delighted with the recognition from his team-mates.

"I'm blown away to receive this award from my peers. I have loved every minute of this amazing tour, with an amazing group of players and to receive this from them is very special," said Davies.

"To come to somewhere like New Zealand, the home of the double world champions after such a short time together and to run them as close as we did is a huge achievement.

"Both teams have put in a huge effort and we have to be very proud of what we have achieved on this Tour. It's been very special for me."
