Check out this touching video that shows Bok star Cheslin Kolbe surprising a young fan on his birthday with a video message that left him in tears of joy.
Earlier this week, the young fan’s mother made a plea on social media, saying that lockdown had dampened her son’s spirits ahead of his seventh birthday on Friday, but asked for help in getting the message to his rugby idol Kolbe.
Twitter fam I need your help.
My not so little boy is celebrating his 7th birthday on Friday.
Lockdown has dampened his spirits but he is a huge rugby fan and idolizes @Cheslin_Kolbe11!
Please RT to see if we can get my boy a birthday msg.

He did manage to get it together in the end to say thank you ❤️. pic.twitter.com/dQg4RoxPJp
