HANSEN HOLDING POLICE CAP AND LOOKING DOWN STORY: New Zealand coach Steve Hansen was made honorary chief of police of the Japanese city of Beppu for the day on Thursday (September 26) as a sign of respect for both him and his team.
Hansen, who was decorated with a sash and cap by Beppu's regular police chief Yufumi Sato, said: "Very humbling to be recognised as the chief of police of Beppu for the day.
"I don't have a clue how I'm going to run the city," he joked.
"I won't be able to do it as well as my colleague, the real chief." The All Blacks have moved their training base to Beppu, a city situated on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu known for its natural hot baths.
Hansen is no stranger to the police force, having served for six years in the New Zealand police.
He said serving in the police had been his vocation and he found similarities to his current job as head coach.
