Roger Federer, a well-known athlete, joined Springboks captain Siya Kolisi in celebrating South Africa’s victory in the Rugby World Cup.
Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer joined Kolisi on Instagram Live to celebrate with his one million followers.
From the top of the Springboks tour bus, the star tennis player from Switzerland is seen soaking in the sights.
He said, “Amazing, Siya, well done again, enjoy it!” in a clip taken from the live stream that was shared on the social media site X, which was formerly known as Twitter.

In the stands during the All Blacks vs. Springboks final, which South Africa won 12-11., Federer was spotted.
At rugby’s premier event, the tennis player was accompanied by his family and Lynette, his mother, who was born and reared in South Africa.
Federer’s mother became a Swiss national after she wed German-Swiss Robert Federer.
Federer was granted permission to join the Springboks in the changing room following the match, where he engaged with the coaches and players.
A number of famous tennis players seized the chance to snap photos with the legend, including Jesse Kriel, Andre Esterhuizen, Damian de Allende, Jean Kleyn, and Kwagga Smith.
Even Rassie Erasmus, the director of rugby for the Springboks, went all fanboy and managed to get Federer to record a video message for his mother.
In the meantime, Faf de Klerk was seen wearing the South African flag printed on his now-iconic speedo.
Novak Djokovic, Federer’s former opponent, was also sighted at the Stade de France final.
Seated next to British singer Rita Ora and her spouse Taika Waititi, who is connected to the All Blacks’ new NZR+ platform, he was caught on camera.
Even though Djokovic began the evening in a suit, after full time he was wearing a rugby jersey from the Springboks.
