"Nurse Hunga" is accompanying his first patient on a long flight home after what can only be described as a bumpy ride at the Olympics.

Sevens star Liam Messam snapped an Instagram photo this afternoon (NZ time) with his fellow teammate Sonny Bill Williams, who was wheelchair-bound with crutches over his shoulder.

Messam wrote, "Rio was a blast, but it's time to be nurse Hunga and get the big man home to get fixed up".

Williams is heading back to New Zealand after rupturing his achilles at the Olympic sevens tournament in Rio.

However, the pair seem to be in good spirits.

Sonny Bill is out of all rugby for up to nine months after hobbling off in the men's shock loss.

Sister Niall Williams, who bid an emotional farewell to her brother, will be returning home later with a silver medal after New Zealand's women's team lost to Australia in the final.
