The Springbok squad embarked on their illustrious trophy tour as they painted the City of Johannesburg green and gold in celebration.
As per EWN, this remarkable journey with the Webb Ellis Cup saw the Boks’ parade commencing in Pretoria on Thursday morning and culminating at the FNB Stadium, south of Joburg, on Thursday afternoon.
It resembled a beautifully scripted tale of spirit and success, breathing new life into the steps of over 60 million South Africans. This story traces back to the dawn of our democracy, where a simple dream was born: the belief that sport could unite and foster social cohesion.
In a city historically associated with gold, this team of green and gold beamed with pride, much like the Web Ellis Cup, shimmering in the sunlit streets of Joburg.
An iconic team, an iconic moment, and an iconic scene, Siya Kolisi and the Springboks have firmly etched their names into rugby’s annals as they crossed the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Braamfontein, illustrating how a nation can rise and conquer.
A sea of green inundated Joburg’s streets as South Africans from diverse backgrounds came together to express their unwavering support for the Boks.
