The Company We Keep profiles some of the most interesting people in our networks. Here we share the details of the lives of people we know, showcasing the extraordinary diversity of our society and proving that people truly are at the heart of everything we do. This is special blog to recognise the leadership of the Springbok captain and to show how sport has the ability to unite a nation.
South Africa is on a high after winning the Rugby World Cup at the weekend. Sport has a phenomenal power to unite a nation. On Saturday we saw a country united behind a team who triumphed against the odds. You just have to run through the various social media posts over the weekend to see just what this meant to South Africans.
In one of his post-match interviews, Siya shared inspiring words and reminded us all of the power of people. When we unite as South African’s were have an energy that is extremely unique and powerful, working together we can build a better future.
🗣 “I have never seen South Africa like this. We were playing for the people back home. We can achieve anything if we work together as one.”— Rugby World Cup (@rugbyworldcup) November 2, 2019
