Netflix's Bad Sport episode on Hansie Cronje's fall from grace brings up old and new feelings on South African sport's most controversial match-fixing scandal. But one thing remains, it's impossible to stay mad at Hansie.

If, as a sports fan (assuming you are by reading this), you catch yourself drawn to watch Netflix's new documentary series, Bad Sport, be prepared to "feel all the feels".

The sixth episode is titled Fallen Idol and harks back to the rise and dishonourable fall from grace of former Proteas captain Hansie Cronje.
