PIC: SA's new president has a No1 fan and it's adorable

Cape Town - SA seems to be on a giddy high with a new president and a sense of hope last seen about a decade ago. 

While new president Cyril Ramaphosa faces a tough road in rebuilding investor confidence and reviving the economy in the wake of Jacob Zuma’s nine-year tenure - he seems to have locals excited about the future.  

PICS: While everyone is debating #ZumaResigns, our new incoming president goes for a run in Sea Point

From Running on the Sea Point promenade, to playing golf, to doing normal things like heading to one of SA's most visited attractions. 

Caught on camera by socialite and model Lee-Ann Liebenberg, while at the V&A Waterfront - It's delightful that Ramaphosa is not shy to snap a selfie or two. 

But it's the photobomber in the background that has caught everybody's attention - with his expression earning himself the title of the presidents No1 fan! Adorbs is all we can say.
