Faf de Klerk has been sporting the most talked about piece of men’s underwear in South Africa, and is channelling the hype around his famous undergarment towards a good cause.
The Springbok scrumhalf has become a cult-hero after helping the team to a third Rugby World Cup title, and his fame owes much to his on-field heroics as it does to his underpants in the colours of the South African flag.
Faf de Klerk undies spark cancer awareness campaign
Having dropped his pants all around the country, de Klerk has challenged his Bok teammates to do the same in the name of cancer awareness.
The 28-year-old posed in the famous Speedo in a picture posted on Instagram, and urged his skipper Siya Kolisi and Jesse Kriel to help spread the word on the cause by also posing in their undies.
So far, only Kriel – whose Rugby World Cup was cut short by injury has joined in.
The Bok centre posed poolside in his own speedo, challenging midfield partner, Damian de Allende, as well as flyhalf Handré Pollard and fullback, Willie le Roux to also join in.
