Siya Kolisi is usually on the receiving end of fans gushing over him…but this time the Springboks captain was in awe after meeting his sporting hero – football player Neymar.
The two sporting icons met at a football match in Paris on Tuesday night. Siya Kolisi undoubtedly earned his bragging rights after sharing an Instagram post of his special meeting with Neymar, the Brazilian-born football legend who plays for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Siya and his wife Rachel were VIP guests at a UEFA Champions League match between PSG and Maccabi Haifa and Tuesday night.
And seeing Neymar in action on the pitch was not enough -Siya got to rub shoulders with the award-winning player.“Great night in Paris”, Siya posted alongside pics of him.
Neymar also shared a pic on his IG Stories of him shaking hands with the Springboks captain. “Nice to meet you”, he posted.
And in a show of great sportsmanship, both Neymar and Siya signed each other’s jerseys.
It’s not the first time a football player has gushed over Siya Kolisi. In February, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne shared a post with the Boks star, hailing him as a “big legend”.
