They wrote: “Siya Kolisi, as the captain of the national rugby team, is right at the center. He’s been the embodiment of hope during a time in which many South Africans find it hard to hold on to any. Through political strife, an energy crisis, and the effects of COVID-19, Siya has made rugby into something more than just a competition. His multiple victories—the country’s victories—have meant so much.

“Through his wisdom and humility, Siya has taught us what a powerful captain should be: someone who serves and inspires those he leads. And for him to lead a team in a historically white sport, to be loved and adored by fans of all races, is an immense achievement.

“Siya is an incessant warrior on the field, but he’s also a doting dad, a loving husband, and a great friend.

“He’s given so much to a nation of 62 million people. I hope he’s been savoring every moment of his success.”
