Siya Kolisi has become a national hero after he led the Springboks into victory at the 2019 Rugby World Cup over the weekend, making history in the process.

While he had the support of thousands of South Africans behind him, Kolisi had one important supporter by his side the entire time - his wife Rachel.

Rachel was in the stands with their kids and Kolisi's father, cheering on the Springboks in the final match against England.

Needless to say, their relationship inspired South Africans on more than one level. Not only is their love for each other inspiring but it also proves that it knows no colour.

A social media user, Meshack Leshabane, posted several snaps of the Kolisis on Facebook on Monday.

The images showed the day Kolisi asked Rachel to be his bae (photo on the left) as well as one showing the beautiful former marketing executive visiting his family.

Leshabane captioned the post:

"My inspirational couple of the month. In case you missed it, she wasn't ashamed of him when he did not know what his next meal was. Love knows no boundaries."
