  • A common nightmare for most footballers involves coming face-to-face with a larger opponent than them.
  • For legendary former Bafana Bafana midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala, he went against one as big as you can on land.
  • The Kaizer Chiefs great and an elephant showed off their footballing prowess.

Here is something you definitely don't see every day.

An elephant showed off more footballing technique than many of us could ever hope to possess. On the other side of the kickabout was none other than the legendary Siphiwe Tshabalala.

The Bafana Bafana legend shared a video on his Instagram of him and his wife Bokang Montjane having a great time with the magnificent beast called Damara. Interestingly, the ball the trio was using is the famous Jabulani from the landmark 2010 FIFA World Cup that was hosted by South Africa, where "Shabba" scored one of the greatest goals in the tournament's 92-year history.

Prominent South African politicians have made it clear which side they are on in the conflict in Western Sahara, between the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic/Polisario Front and the kingdom. The highest-profile flashpoint yet came last week, when Chief Mandla Mandela called for a free Western Sahara from Moroccan rule, as per Al-Jazeera.

His comment was made at the opening ceremony of the 2022 African Nations Championship in Algeria. Complicating matters is that Algeria and its neighbours are not exactly on good terms themselves.

Orlando Pirates has gone out of its way to solving the malaise in front of goals in the DStv Premiership this season.
