Fremantle star Nat Fyfe wins the 2015 Brownlow Medal

Video: Donna Demaio on the red carpet

Nat Fyfe has won the 2015 Brownlow Medal.

The odds-on favourite defied history to poll 31 votes and hold on for victory, despite missing four games late in the season.

It’s the first time that’s happened since the 1930s.

Last year’s winner, Matt Priddis, finished runner-up with 28 votes.

It’s the first time a Fremantle player has won the AFL’s highest individual honour.

Fyfe was voted best on ground a record-equalling nine times throughout the year.

3AW was there to cover the action throughout the night, with Sports Today even speaking to the local publican from Fyfe’s home town at Lake Grace in Western Australia.
