Bok star denies ‘unfounded’ claims

Eben Etzebeth has emphatically refuted rumours and a video doing the rounds alleging he was involved in an incident over the weekend in Langebaan.

Inflammatory accusations did the rounds on social media on Sunday, including a video suggesting Etzebeth had been involved in an incident with ‘homeless guys’ in the seaside Cape town of Langebaan.

However he took to his Facebook account to emphatically deny the claims.

‘It is completely untrue and unfounded to claim that I physically or racially abused anyone in Langebaan as has been reported on social media. Multiple witnesses can corroborate that,’ he stated.

‘I am and will always strive to be a true ambassador to this beautiful rainbow nation and the sport that I love.’
