Wayde van Niekerk is getting an incredible surprise when he lands in SA


Well, maybe he already knows about it.

But a brand new Audi R8 is certainly nothing to be sneezed at. Olympic gold medalist Wayde van Niekerk is set to land at OR Tambo in Joburg today, where the brand-new car is waiting for him.
Also waiting for the 400 m champ are scores of fans wearing SA colours, eager to catch a glimpse of their hero when he lands.

Wayde is expected to touch down at around 10 am on Wednesday.

No doubt the athlete is looking forward to being back in his homeland -- Wayde has been in Europe since the Olympics in Rio, while his family and long-term girlfriend Chesney Campbell returned last month.
