It’s a moment that will live long in the memory: The heroes of the Springboks team filtering in through a packed OR Tambo terminal, greeted by thousands of adoring fans. This is the unity that South Africa is capable of, and it’s good news for everyone. Well, maybe not for this bloke’s partner, anyway.
Interviewees behaving badly at OR Tambo
It’s another one of “those” interviews guys, and it has us grinning from ear-to-ear. As if it were possible to see the jubilant scenes we’ve revelled in topped somehow, another hero has emerged in Johannesburg. One who speaks his mind, and talks on behalf of the people.
Perhaps he’d taken a leaf out of Makazole Mapimpi’s book. The charismatic Bok was the first to field media questions on Tuesday, but it’s probably the only decision South Africa have got wrong in the past four weeks. The athlete accidentally dropped an F-bomb during his live press conference at OR Tambo.
Business, not pleasure for this Springboks fan
During an interview with eNCA, this die-hard rugby explained his feelings and emotions as the World Cup winners returned home. Goodness me, we challenge you to find a better take on this wonderful moment than this. It simply can’t be done…

“This is sport. This is the one thing… the only thing… that can make us forget about service delivery. It makes us forget about sex. It is the one thing that can bring the people together and ensure they all celebrate.”Boks fan at OR Tambo
South Africans react to “forget about sex” interview
The anonymous supporter has gone down a storm on social media, and the viral clip is buzzing around social media with as much love as the moment Siya Kolisi and Rassie Erasmus lifted Webb-Ellis trophy over the weekend. The party mood has been electric. However, those looking to, erm, “consumate” this occasion might want to find a more willing participant than the one we’ve found here.
Seriously though, what a guy: Let’s hope he has a great evening, no matter what’s on his mind.
