Dustin Martin cemented his status as one of the greatest players in AFL history with a commanding performance in Saturday's grand final.
The former Castlemaine and Bendigo Pioneers midfielder added a second premiership medal and second Norm Smith Medal to his glittering career.
The 28-year-old is now the only player in AFL history to have won two AFL premierships, two Norm Smith medals and a Brownlow Medal.
"It's always cool when you get those kind of things," Martin said at Richmond's grand final press conference.
"But take all the individual stuff away.
"I just couldn't be prouder to get this (premiership) medal here today and the other one a couple of years ago.
"That is what you play footy for. That is why I play a team sport."
Martin was a unanimous choice for the Norm Smith Medal, polling three votes from all five judges.
He joins Gary Ayres, Andrew McLeod and Luke Hodge as the only players to win two Norm Smith medals.
In typical Martin style he didn't want the spotlight to shine on himself.
"The thing that I love about this footy club is we don't actually really care who gets the touches, who kicks the goals," Martin said.
"I'm lucky enough to get the recognition.
"But the thing I love about the team is we all play our role.
"It was me today - it was someone else last week. I just love how we don't really care about any of that stuff."
Richmond coach Damien Hardwick was quick to laud his star player.
"He's funny, the big fella beside me, he'll get embarrassed talking about it," Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said of Martin.
"But the way he can just influence a game is incredible.
"He works really, really hard both physically and mentally on his game ... we're so fortunate to have a player as him represent our great club.
"He will go down now as one of the all-time greats - two-time premiership, two-time Norm Smith. Oh, a Brownlow too - I forgot that."
