When you're arguably the most famous man in New Zealand, just buying gas turns into a challenge.

Richie McCaw is nothing short of a Kiwi legend, so it's no wonder this fan reacted in the way he did when he saw the retired All Black at a gas station.

This humourous video appeared on social media overnight and gives an insight into McCaw's daily life - a routine where fans are constantly overwhelmed by seeing the great man and are then compelled to document the evidence in the digital world.

McCaw is recognised paying for his gas at a petrol station. The incredulous fan then did what 99 per cent of us seem to do every day now - whipped out his smart phone and captured the incident on video while offering his own commentary.

Richie handles it like a champion.

"It's Richie Micooooy!"
