33-year-old Williams, who has won 51 All Blacks caps after switching codes from league to union, was visibly emotional in his video tribute to the victims and their families after Friday's shootings in the city on New Zealand's south island.

Williams spent time in Christchurch in 2011 when he played for Super Rugby team, Crusaders, and currently plays for the Auckland Blues.

Williams, who also had a stint as a professional boxer, began his career in rugby league, playing for the Canterbury Bulldogs before returning to the code to play for the Sydney Roosters.

The two-time Rugby World Cup winner has also played club rugby union in France with Toulon and in Japan where he featured for Panasonic Wild Knights.

Williams converted to islam in 2009 and is the first Muslim to play for the All Blacks.
