Pretoria - While most South Africans are impressed with Cameron van der Burgh’s gold medal at the Olympic Games, no one is prouder of him than the family’s domestic worker.

Sanna Legodi, the woman who had worked for the Van der Burgh family for 28 years, said she was incredibly proud of him, reported Beeld.

“He is my angel, I love him so much,” said Legodi.

“He is so sweet, always full of jokes,” she said at their Garsfontein home in Pretoria.

She said Van der Burgh grew up in front of her and had always loved all kinds of sport, but once he started swimming he cared for nothing else.

Van der Burgh’s parents and brother Andrew were also in London with him.

“I miss Cameron now too much. He has been away for more than two months, it’s time that he comes home,” Legodi said.
