Rio Olympics 2016: Kiwi Olympian Eric Murray brought back to earth

World champion Eric Murray was snapped back into reality this week when his Olympic gold medal was discarded in a toy box next to a Mr Potato Head toy.

Murray is one of many Kiwi athletes finding his feet again at home after returning from Rio where New Zealand enjoyed a record medal haul.

Black Sticks midfielder Anita Punt has been spending time feeding the ducks.

While Sonny Bill Williams is recovering from a torn achilles suffered in Rio, and has been given some serious attitude from his daughter.
