South Africa rugby team were named the Laureus “Team of the Year” in Berlin on Monday night for winning the world cup last year.
Springboks secured their third world title after beating England 32-12 in the final.

Now kids from townships know that they can achieve their dream. We all have beautiful and inspiring stories to tell. Thank you to the academy,” Kolisi said.
