Guess Which Footballer Met SA's Olympic Champion

Wayde van Niekerk, who made headlines in August when he clinched gold in the 400m sprint at the Rio Olympics to earn himself historic status among South African athletes, recently met up with a local footballer. Can you guess who it was? 

The Olympic champion is a massive football fan, and he recently met up with the Bayern Munich squad in Germany, where he met one his favourite players, Xabi Alonso. 

Van Niekerk, who is also a massive Liverpool fan, is currently in Bloemfontein, and he was snapped hanging out with Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Lyle Lakay after the two participated in a football game. 

Lakay even wrote that the famous runner was "scoring from all angles". 

Check out their snap below!
