After their epic win over the All Blacks last week and a come-from-behind draw against Australia on Saturday, Argentina are certainly the flavour of the month in the rugby world.

And it's their fearless leader, Pablo Matera that's made a huge impact with his incredible performances on the field.

But Matera is bringing joy off the field too as the video below shows.

Watch the act of kindness and the boy's reaction below:
