Go Bokke! Messages and songs of support flood social media ahead of RWC final
It's finally here - the day South Africa get their chance to lift the Web Ellis trophy for a third time, and Springbok fever is running high.
In a video call to Siya Kolisi ahead of the semi-final against Wales, President Cyril Ramaphosa urged the skipper to make sure to book his ticket to the final and the team delivered.
Boarding his flight for Japan, Ramaphosa said he was looking forward to giving the Boks "lots of woema" from 57-million South Africans supporting them.
