Coleman Medal: Franklin & Lockett Lance Franklin discusses winning the Coleman Medal for the fourth time alongside Tony Lockett.

The AFL's greatest ever goal-kicker joined this nation's sporting elite with his induction into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame on Thursday night.

In front of the largest congregation of world champions and Olympic medallist you'll see in this country, Lockett was presented on stage at the gala dinner with his medallion as one of several inductees.

We've compiled the best images from the night below.
