British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton has given fans the chance to remember the summer tour of New Zealand in a different way.

Fresh from leading the Lions to a 1-1 series draw against the All Blacks, the Wales forward has donated his kit from the tour to a local charity shop in Cardiff.

The 28-year-old tweeted a picture of himself outside the Tenovus Cancer Care store in Rhiwbina, where he played his junior rugby.

"It's that time of year again,'' he wrote. "Pop down to @tenovuscancer Rhiwbina for my @lionsofficial and @cardiff_blues kit!"

The store fielded questions from fans eager to get their hands of Warburton's kit, and added on twitter that Warburton was "an absolute legend''.
