Roger Federer acts as a tour guide for Siya Kolisi in Switzerland – SAPeople
Tennis legend Roger Federer has delighted South African fans with photos of himself showing off Springbok rugby captain Siya Kolisi around Zurich, Switzerland.
Kolisi stopped in Switzerland on his way back to South Africa from the UK, where the Springboks played their final games of the season, beating Wales and Scotland before falling to England.
Swiss star Roger – who holds dual citizenship with South Africa because his mum Lynette is a South African expat – tweeted: “Anyone need a tour guide? I found a Springbok wandering the streets of Zurich. What a pleasure to see you Siya.
Roger has uploaded photos on all his social media channels showing him with Captain Bok at various famous Swiss sites, including that of delicious Lindt Chocolate, with Roger’s mum and dad as well.
Siya was in Switzerland last night to attend a very successful charity gala dinner in Geneva on behalf of The Sharks (his team in KwaZulu-Natal), in support of community development and upliftment in South Africa. The Sharks recently announced a partnership with the Servette district in the Geneva business community, which will focus on growing the sport in the region, according to the South African Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Geneva and other organisations. international in Switzerland.
The South African mission released a photo of Siya accompanied by Sharks CEO Eduardo Coetzee, Ambassador Nkosi and his wife.
While in Switzerland, Siya missed his four-year-old daughter Kiki’s birthday party yesterday…so he and Roger sent her a special message on Facebook from the Lindt store. Siya said: “Birthday wish from Switzerland @lindt @rogerfederer for Kiki ❤️ Thank you @rogerfederer”
