Cape Town mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis earlier cheekily presented hooker Bongi Mbonambi with a t-shirt with the words 'Wen Kant' printed on it.

Hill-Lewis thanked the Boks for what they have done for the country.

"I hope that you can feel the love and affection from our city. I know that in France you were getting videos, you were getting voice notes, maybe you saw it on the news but now you can feel how these people love you, how much we love you from the bottom of our hearts.

"Thank you Springbok for inspiring us, thank you for showing us that our country can be the best, not just in sports but our whole country. Our country can be the best." 

The Boks are due to fly to Durban on Friday evening.
