The desperately emotional Springboks clip which is going viral across the sporting world
A clip from the groundbreaking Springboks series, ‘Chasing the Sun’ has gone utterly viral this week online, the clip truly is incredible.
For any rugby fan slightly out of the loop, ‘Chasing the Sun’ is a documentary that the South African rugby team created during the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Recently, the 5-part episodic series has been released to celebrate their success, and the documentary is being hailed by many as the best sports documentary that they have EVER seen.
Watched #ChasingTheSun earlier today. Genuinely one of the best sports documentaries I’ve ever seen. It demonstrates exactly how sport should feel & connect people 🙏🏾

#ChasingTheSun final episode done. Tough to explain what I’m feeling right now, too much to handle really. But what I do know is it gives me hope for the future. A vision of how we can make it work. Thanks @GarethWhittaker and co. for getting this out there, we needed this🇿🇦

Well done to our team at @SuperSportTV and all involved in #ChasingTheSun It was simply magical. What a stunning ode to a brilliant, history-making team, and all who dared to hope that they’d indeed win the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The Springboks released a clip in the final episode that is currently going viral everywhere on the Internet. It shows a moment where head coach Rassie Erasmus is talking about Makazole Mapimpi.
In the clip, he tells the story about why the winger chose not to include photos of his family on the back of his shirt, when the rest of the team had.
Very emotional to say the least.
