Troubled springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies posts cryptic message on social media after his affair's exposure

Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies has responded to the fallout that has ensued since his relationship with team dietician Zeenat Simjee was made public.

Jantjies posted a cryptic message on his Instagram page that was accompanied by a photo of Robert De Niro in his depiction of Vito Corleone in the Godfather series.

The South African Rugby Union sent the two home from Argentina, where the team is preparing for a crucial Rugby Championship match against Los Pumas on Saturday evening.

Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies reportedly in an extramarital affair with team dietician

Elton Jantjies has found himself in another spot of bother.

The Springbok flyhalf's professionalism has come into disrepute after a Sunday newspaper alleged that he is involved in an affair with the team's dietician Zeenat Simjee. He is married to Iva Ristic, with the couple being the parents of three children.

The two set up trysts at two different locations in Mbombela ahead of the first Test against New Zealand last month. Jantjies did not stay in the same hotel as his teammates as is tradition, which surprisingly did not raise any suspicions.
