Rassie Erasmus made headlines last week when reports of his divorce surfaced. Now, the World Cup-winning rugby coach seems to enjoy life as a newly single man.

As per The South African, court documents showed that Rassie and his ex-wife Nicolene — who married in 2003 and share three daughters — quietly divorced in April. Days after the announcement, Rassie shared a picture of himself on X standing and smiling in what many believed to be a pub next to a fan — a literal fan, that is.
