WATCH: Blitzboks skipper thanks SA fans after qualifying for Rio semis

11 August, 09:47 AM

SA Sevens captain Kyle Brown stayed behind after the team's 22-5 quarter-final win over Australia at the Rio 2016 Olympics Sevens, to thank the South African fans for coming out and showing their support. Watch.  

The Blitzbokke lost to the Australians earlier in the day during the pool phase, but won when it counted with a dominant performance in the quarter-final. South Africa will face Great Britain on Thursday in the Sevens semi-finals, for a realistic shot at medalling. 

Semi-final fixtures (SA time):

Fiji vs Japan - 19h30

Great Britain vs South Africa - 20h00
