On Thursday, Briefly.co.za reported that the Springboks kicked off their national trophy tour at the Union Buildings.
President Cyril Ramaphosa joined thousands of South Africans to greet the boys in green and Faf de Klerk had an opportunity to meet with the head of state.
The photo of President Cyril Ramaphosa and De Klerk was shared on Twitter and it won Mzansi over.
The photo was captioned:
"The only De Klerk we love."
South Africans were quick to give their two cents' worth on the pic of Ramaphosa and De Klerk and it's clear the scrumhalf is loved in Mzansi.
Senzi Nkosi, who goes by the Twitter handle @SenziNkosi1, commented:
"Love how happy he seems when he's playing. He's too cute bathong!"
Rastshi Modise, @JmoDICE, added:
"Why is he wearing pants now? Mxm. He should do the parade in those SA flag speedos."
