it is usually a thing of pleasure for South Africans to see one of their local idols meeting with another famous figure on the international scene. This reality is all too glaring for those paying attention.
This much was obvious once again when Siya Kolisi, the captain of the South African national rugby team, was spotted in conversation with former England captain David Beckham.
The two reportedly met in France. The picture of the uo was shared by Siya Kolisi himself. It is unclear when the picture was taken, whether during the recently concluded Rugby World Cup (which South Africa won) or not.
Either way, fans were more interested in the significance of the two meeting than in anything else. After all. David Beckham is one of the most influential figures in the world of football, retired or not.
The fact that he was with the South African indicated that Siya himself was a man of considerable influence himself. You can check out the image below.
This is the first known time that the South African rugby captain has met with his British counterpart. In the course of his career though, he’d met several other important figures, in sports and other fields.
