EXTRA TIME: Watch South African President Cyril Ramaphosa talk to Banyana on video phone

It's not every day that the President of the country gives a football player a phone call

This was no ordinary phone call too. It was a video call. Furthermore, the call came from the President of South Africa himself, Cyril Ramaphosa.

The President wanted to tell the South African ladies national football team how proud he is that they've reached the Africa Women's Cup of Nations final. 

He is also wishing them all the best against Nigeria this evening. You can watch the full message, thanks to Ramaphosa's Twitter here.

We've also included personal messages from South Africa's Olympics stars. Enjoy! Good luck to Banyana.
