A video capturing a fan’s unexpected attempt to kiss Springbok’s captain Siya Kolisi during a tour in the Eastern Cape has ignited a frenzy on social media.
The South African national rugby team, the Springboks, has just wrapped up their national trophy parade after a sensational win over New Zealand.
Following their grand return to South Africa, the rugby players have been touring different parts of Mzansi engaging with fans. Nonetheless, their tour has been tinged with a touch of drama and controversy.
Female Fan Tries to Kiss Siya Kolisi
On Sunday, the Springboks concluded their trophy tour in East London with a jubilant celebration. Nevertheless, the festivities took an unexpected turn when a fan made an audacious attempt to kiss Siya Kolisi.
In a widely circulated video, the woman can be observed hurling herself at the Springboks captain, going to great lengths in an endeavour to kiss his lips.
Siya Kolisi was taken by surprise as the woman lunched at him. He used all his might to stop the woman from kissing him. The security ended up intervening as Siya left the scene in a state of visible frustration.
