An Australian teenager who broke an egg on a controversial far-right senator’s head says he has given almost A$100,000 (£55,000; $69,000) to survivors of the Christchurch mosque attacks.

Will Connolly, 17, egged Fraser Anning in March – prompting people online to dub him “Egg Boy” and flood him with donations to pay his legal expenses.

Mr Anning had caused fury a day earlier when he said Muslim migration was to blame for the Christchurch shootings.

Fifty-one people died in the attacks.

Mr Anning was formally censured by Australia’s Senate in April for his “appalling” remarks, made on the day of the shootings.

Mr Connolly confronted the senator from behind as he gave a press conference in Melbourne on 16 March.

Footage of the clash went viral. It showed Mr Anning physically retaliating before his supporters tackled the teenager to the ground.
