Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is one of the darlings of South Africa and his popularity soared when he led the Boks to their Rugby World Cup triumph.
His wife, Rachel, is a popular public figure in her own right and the pair boast impressive social media followings.
Few would be surprised then that when the Kolisis shared some family snaps via social media, both went viral.
Siya shared a lovely family photo with the magnificent Table mountain in the background.
His Instagram post included a bible verse from the book of Isaiah:
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed."
Rachel's photo was equally stunning and the whole family was full of smiles after taking their scenic hike. Her caption read:
"Ain’t perfect, but we’re solid."
The two posts can be viewed below.
Briefly.co.za noted that the two posts attracted more than 40 000 likes in total.
"Perfection is overrated after all. You're real and we love real."
"Oh sweet Mama. Your girl turning in a great young woman."
"Beautiful family photo with the wonderful table mountain as a back drop. God bless you all."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Siya Kolisi has topped the list of most influential people in world rugby.
Rassie Erasmus at number six, SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux at 15 and new Bok coach Jacques Nienaber were the other South Africans to make the top 50.
Kolisi is said to share similarities with England skipper Maro Itoje, who was ranked at number three.
