The Springbok prop laughs as he regales how he had to become ‘very formal’ over the phone when he realised the president was phoning!

Springbok prop Beast Mtawarira’s 100th appearance in the Green-and-Gold was rewarded with a victory in the second Test against England in Bloemfontein.

But the gifts didn’t stop there for one of South Africa’s true warriors.

During Friday’s captain’s run in the build-up to the big match, Mtawarira got an unexpected phone call from a very prominent individual…

Here’s what the ‘Beast’ had to say about his chat with President Cyril Ramaphosa.
