Romeo Kumalo took part in the ultimate human race - the Comrades Marathon - and his wife Basetsana Kumalo was there to support him every step of the way. 

The former Miss South Africa took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a video of their children cheering him along the route. 

"…no caption needed…okay then, just the fact that we are still on a high!" she captioned one post. 

The 48-year-old and the rest of the Kumalo family held up signs and drove to various spots to catch a glimpse of Romeo as he made his way to the finish line.

Bassie, as her friends and family call her, also gave a special shout to everyone who supported the 13,200 Comrades runners who took part in the gruelling marathon. 

"What we witnessed [on Sunday] was true Comradeship, families outside of their homes, braaing to feed the runners, people with cooler boxes giving water and energy drinks, others with peanut butter sandwiches, bananas, oranges and pineapples, some with cramp sprays. Then there was song and dance at every stop…this is who are as a people as a nation. We are a great people!!! Siyababongela!" she wrote.
