Fremantle superstar Nat Fyfe has won the 2015 Brownlow Medal for the AFL’s best and fairest player on Monday night.

The star onballer finished on 31, holding off last year’s winner Matt Priddis from West Coast by three votes.

Fyfe arrived at the count with a walking cane and hobbled to the stage to receive his medal.
He suffered a leg fracture early in last Friday night’s preliminary final loss to Hawthorn, but played out the match and was among Fremantle’s best players.
Fyfe won’t have a lot of time to celebrate the big win as he prepares to undergo surgery on his fractured fibula this week.
