South Africa’s golden boy Siya Kolisi recently left many South Africans laughing out loud after he let us all in on a little secret. The rugby captain confessed to having a bad odour problem particular after a hectic match and South Africans absolutely loved his honesty.

Siya Kolisi leaves peeps howling

Everyone gets a little sweaty, especially after doing some strenuous activity and South African rugby champ Siya Kolisi is no different. What sets the rugby captain apart from the rest of us is that he honestly has no shame about his smelly armpits.

While doing an ad campaign for Dove deodorant, Captain Kolisi shared that his underarms produce a pretty hectic smell after he plays rugby, and going without some deodorant is just not an option for him. Taking to his Instagram page on 22 August, he shared a clip of himself on the beach promoting the product with the caption:

“I struggle with my armpits after a game because ayanuka (it stinks) 😂😂 so thanks Dove Men+Care for your lekker deo that gives me 48hours of smelling good. #Ad #DoveMenCare #ChampionsofCare”
