As Rugby World Cup 2015 heats up, former South African President Nelson Mandela has been posthumously inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.
A special ceremony was held at St. James’ Park in Newcastle on Saturday, just before the Springboks’ game against Scotland in the Rugby World Cup 2015.
The honour given to Nelson Mandela relates to his support of the South African Springbok team during Rugby World Cup 1995, a year after his release from prison and the end of apartheid, when he united the South African nation via the power of sport.
