Springbok winger Cheslin Kolbe was once again the talk of the town after cameras focused on him picking up litter after Toulouse’s European Champions Cup win over Munster on Saturday.
One of the world’s best players, it’s usually Kolbe’s stepping and his elusive running that gets fans talking.
But on Saturday, it was his responsibility that had fans cooing after he walked around Munster’s Thomond Park with a bag picking up rubbish following the game.
BT Sport’s rugby Twitter account read: “Cheslin Kolbe, arguably the best player in the world right now, cleaning up rubbish around the pitch at Thomond Park after full-time... This is what it’s all about.”
