World Cup-winning Springbok Elton Jantjies allegedly spent 10 minutes banging on the toilet door of an Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai to Johannesburg until his fists bled, saying "Komaan, my skat (Come on, my darling)", to an air hostess hiding in the cubicle.

Two witnesses told News24 that Jantjies was unsteady on his feet and that there was blood "all over the toilet door" and that his blood-stained fists smeared some of the seats as he made his way to his seat after he was unable to breach the door.

A visibly "terrified" air hostess then emerged from the toilet after Jantjies had returned to his seat, according to a witness.
