We take a look at another young South African making his dream come true in Europe

Young South African forward Gift Links is enjoying life and his football in Denmark.

The 20-year-old left Cape Town City for Aarhus GF in the South African winter and he's settling down to life in Europe.

In the past, he's also played for Platinum Stars in South Africa, and he's now making giant strides in the Danish Superliga.

Links recently scored his first goal for Aarhus, making his first start in the Danish Cup on Thursday. He had previously made two substitute appearances, and this time, up against VSK in the third-round, Links scored in the 74th minute to level the game at 1-1. He took Aarhus to extra-time, where they won the match 3-1.

Thanks to a Tweet by Velile Mnyandu of the SABC we can watch a video of Links being interviewed in Denmark and showing off his skills.

Earlier this month, Olympic champion Caster Semenya joined South African football club JVW.

The two-time Olympic gold medallist in the 800 metres, Semenya wants to make her football debut next year, because she missed the registration deadline for the league.

JVW are owned by South Africa women's captain Janine van Wyk, and the Banyana star explains in a video interview how she signed the athlete.

The video is brought to the public thanks to a Tweet by Sias du Plessis, a China Global Television Network correspondent.
