Briefly.co.za noticed that Ramaphosa sent a cheeky message to Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of Britain, calling him 'BoJo' and saying he looks forward to seeing him come Saturday.

With such excitement in the Mzansi air, who can blame him for feeling a little bit of glee?

Check out the tweet:

It wasn't an easy win, and Wales gave no quarter South Africa. There were doubts at the beginning of the game as Wales put up a ferocious defence and South Africa struggled to win the kicking game in the air.

The referee Jérôme Garcès blew a fair game and the Welsh made every use of the advantages they accrued. In the second half, South Africa managed to score a try but Wales returned with their own try moments later bringing the score to a tie at 16-16.

In the end, SA pulled through, but their performance will have to be top-class if they want to lift that cup with Ramaphosa at the International Stadium Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
