Cape Town – 2019 is a massive year for South African sport with both the Cricket World Cup in May and the Rugby World Cup in September taking place.
And both the Proteas and the Springboks, it seems, have a fan in world famous English pop star Ed Sheeran.
The 28-year-old is in the country touring and he played shows at the FNB Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
He found time, though, to pop into the Wanderers on Sunday to watch South Africa secure a 3-0 clean sweep in their T20I series against Sri Lanka.
The SuperSport cameras were quick to find Sheeran, and images of him in his Proteas kit quickly started doing the rounds on social media.
Sheeran won over his South African fans even more when he came out clad in a Springbok jersey at his show at FNB Stadium.
Sheeran is likely to support England at both World Cups this year, but if South Africa become his second-favourite side, we’ll take it!
