Young South Africa fan in tears as hero signs his PANTS after Rugby World Cup win over Scotland | The Sun

A YOUNG rugby fan was left in tears after South Africa star Faf de Klerk autographed his pants on Sunday.

The Springboks cruised to an 18-3 win over Scotland in their opening Rugby World Cup match.

De Klerk was thrilled with the result and was keen to celebrate with travelling fans after the match.

But he was stopped in his tracks by a young fan with a bizarre autograph request.

The South Africa supporter appeared to ask De Klerk to sign his PANTS in reference to the scrum-half's iconic budgie smugglers.

De Klerk left fans in hysterics when he celebrated the Springboks' 2019 Rugby World Cup triumph by drinking champagne out of the trophy while wearing just a pair of pants – all before meeting Prince Harry.

He then gave the tearful South Africa superfan a hug.

Fans took to social media to praise the rugby star, with one person writing: "Faf is an amazing individual, from the 7s to the 15s he has been nothing but an inspiration to young adults."

Another added: "That’s what it’s all about!"
