Watch: Japanese Fan Meets His Hero Shane Williams, Totally Loses His Mind

Japan took on Wales in Cardiff today, with the Welsh nudging it 33-30 with a last-minute drop-goal by Sam Davies. Rob Howley later admitted that Japan deserved to win, but one supporter's disappointment was tempered with devotion.

We always knew that Shane Williams was a bit of a hero, but we never expected he would attract the kind of fawning, breathless obsession that is usually reserved for the Wire and Justin Bieber.

Williams ended his career in Japan: he made ten appearances for Mitsubishi Dynaboars in the Japanese Top League.

Those games are remembered fondly by this Japanese fan, who went into meltdown upon meeting Williams.

Poor Shane didn't have a clue how to react. Watch below:
